Course DescriptionMovement Disorders in Children and Adolescents

This course features an internationally renowned faculty of clinicians who will present on "Movement Disorders in Children and Adolescents".  Young-onset movement disorders are challenging in clinical practice. For clinicians the three main practical questions are:

  • What do we see (phenotyping)
  • What is the cause (etiology) and subsequently
  • What is the optimal treatment? Phenotyping comprises classification of the movement disorder type, but also the evaluation of other neurological and systemic features

The first day's sessions will highlight the clinical spectrum of involuntary movements ranging from physiological movements to movement disorders. The second day focuses on etiology including genetic and acquired causes. At the end of the day different treatment options are discussed including DBS. During the two-day course, several patients will be presented "live" in a "grand round" format.
