Anyone With A Child That Went To A Pediatric Neurologist Until The Age Of 22 ?

Anyone With A Child That Went To A Pediatric Neurologist Until The Age Of 22 ?

My daughter has to find a Behavioral Neurologist at 22 years old. Has anyone else had to do this and how did it go ? The Neurologist we have now is in charge of her medication

Any neurologist I have seen is old school and clueless on Autism you do not have to see them!! I recommend doing research and finding an amazing PCP bc I did and it saved us!! He is amazing and has an Autistic Child!! The best help is from those who live with it EVERY day in my opinion!! Good Luck

My children saw a pediatric neurologist until they were in their late teens. The only reason we stopped was because we moved. I would have been happy to NEVER have changed for several reasons. The first was because this neurologist had a son with autism and was well aware of the personal trials and tribulations of our plight and was never once dismissive of anything we saw or thought we saw.
Secondly, he didn’t achieve his education simply through medical school, some blind research and “overreactive” mothers, but rather firsthand experience and the trial and error of finding and many times failing to help his child.
It is my opinion that these doctors are our most valuable, most effective, and probably most underrated.
I don’t understand what a Behavioral Neurologist even means... All Neurologists make decisions about patients based on behavior and imaging technology. I would ask for clarification and write a formal letter requesting to stay with your current doctor if that’s what you would prefer. I might talk it over with the PN first though.
