About the Authors
  • Progressive neurodevelopmental disorders that affect the development of the infant brain can have detrimental impacts on a range of cognitive and emotional behaviors. The identification and management of these disorders can be challenging for neurologists, pediatricians and other healthcare professionals who encounter these conditions in their practices.
