Brain Development and Genetics (BrDG) Clinic
If your child has been diagnosed with a disorder of brain development or brain structure, your family probably has many questions. These conditions are rare, so it can be hard to find helpful information.
Our Brain Development and Genetics (BrDG) Clinic at Children’s Hospital Boston is a specialty consultation service that may be able to help. Our program bridges the fields of neurology, genetics, genetic counseling and research to build a comprehensive approach to helping your child and answering questions you may have. We specialize in assessment, and the goal of our program is to offer the most up-to-date diagnosis possible for your child’s brain development disorder.
Members of our team also conduct research to find new genetic abnormalities that may be responsible for disorders of brain development. So if available genetic testing has not provided an explanation for your child’s condition, we can talk with you about whether participating in our genetic research is an appropriate option for your family.
