About the Brain Care Clinic

The Pediatric Brain Care Clinic is an interdisciplinary clinic for infants, children, and adolescents with, or at risk for, developmental and/or behavioral disabilities associated with an acquired brain injury, who have been hospitalized at American Family Children’s Hospital. Children and their families are seen for initial and follow-up visits to address concerns related to the affects of an acquired brain injury, including delay in growth and development, behavior issues, headache management, learning/memory deficits, school performance concerns, and decisions on when to return to full activities.

Clinic Goals

  • Provide early recognition and treatment of behavioral, developmental or learning deficits as a result of a brain injury
  • Provide symptom management of post-concussive headaches
  • Provide health care counseling regarding prevention of subsequent brain injury
  • Create a multidisciplinary team of health care professionals to meet your child’s specific needs
  • Facilitate access to community resources and services to support your child and family
  • Support and advocate for the patient and family
