Private Paediatric Neurologists in London

Access the care and support your child needs
Our highly experienced private paediatric neurologists diagnose, treat and manage neurological conditions in children.

What is a Paediatric Neurologist?

A paediatric neurologist is a medical professional who specialises in neurological conditions in children from birth to 18. A neurological condition is a disorder that affects the nervous system (your brain, spinal cord and nerves).

At Dementech Neurosciences, our team of paediatric neurologists provide comprehensive consultations and personalised diagnostic pathways and management plans.

We’re committed to your child’s safety and put them at the forefront of everything we do.

Neurological conditions we assess and diagnose?

Our highly skilled children’s neurologists can assess and diagnose various neurological conditions.

We can diagnose and assess:

Diagnosis pathways

Our broad range of advanced diagnostic techniques ensures your child receives an accurate diagnosis. We use state-of-the-art technology in a relaxing, child-friendly environment to fully support your child throughout the process.

The diagnosis tests that our paediatric neurologists use include:

  • MRI scans to check and detect any structural abnormalities or lesions in the brain
  • Electroencephalography (EEG) to study brain activity and identify epileptic or seizure-related abnormalities
  • Neurophysiological tests to examine nerve function
  • Genetic testing to diagnose or rule out neurogenetic disorders
  • Neurophysiological assessments for cognitive and behavioural differences

Treatment and management plans for neurological disorders in children

Neurological conditions aren’t always curable, but we provide effective treatment approaches and management plans to support your child’s health and wellbeing.

Some of the treatment and management plans our paediatric neurologists can provide are:

  • Medication – we can use different medicines to manage symptoms such as seizures in epilepsy. Sometimes, your child may need to try other medications at varying doses until we find the right one for their needs. Our neurologists will always support them.
  • Behavioural therapy – this can help address behavioural and developmental challenges in conditions like autism.
  • Neurorehabilitation – personalised programmes help your child grow and improve their motor skills and functional abilities.
  • Dietary and nutritional advice – some neurological conditions like epilepsy may benefit from guidance on nutrition and specific diets to avoid seizures.
  • Surgical interventions – we perform surgery when necessary for conditions such as tumours and epilepsy.

We take a multidisciplinary approach to paediatric neurological conditions, ensuring your child receives tailored care and support based on their needs.

When should I book my child a neurological assessment?

Knowing when to speak with a paediatric neurologist can be challenging. However, spotting symptoms in your child that suggest a neurological disorder can suggest an appointment is necessary.

Symptoms that show your child may benefit from seeing a paediatric neurologist include:

  • Frequent headaches
  • Seizures
  • Problems communicating or with speech
  • Muscle weakness
  • Developmental delays

If you have a family history of neurological conditions, we recommend speaking with a paediatric neurologist.

What to expect when you visit Dementech Neurosciences in London

When you visit our private facilities in London, our friendly team will greet you and direct you to the correct area for your child’s appointment.

Our paediatric neurologists adhere to rigorous diagnostic standards set by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). We can diagnose a broad range of neurological conditions in children and our diagnostic pathway ensures your child receives the continued care they deserve.

First, your child will undergo a neurodevelopmental assessment. Our clinicians will observe and interact with your child and thoroughly evaluate their communication skills, sensory processing and social interactions.

We also perform psychological assessments to create a holistic and comprehensive diagnosis. During this evaluation, we look at your child’s cognitive abilities, emotional wellbeing and behaviour. It helps create a psychological profile of your child, which guides us when providing effective and supportive care.

Next, we’ll carry out an academic evaluation where we gather information about your child’s education. We review school reports, speak with teachers and analyse assessments to get deeper insight into your child’s strengths and challenges.
