Movement Disorders

About Your Child’s Care and Condition

Movement disorders include a diverse group of diseases of the brain and other areas of the nervous system. They’re typically caused by disorders of brain function or brain diseases that affect voluntary and automatic movements. Your child may experience either too much or too little movement—either can interfere with regular activities.

We also offer clinics that specialize in several common movement disorders, including tics, Tourette syndrome and cerebral palsy (spasticity). These clinics bring professionals from many areas together to work with your child in a coordinated treatment program.
