Camps & Programs for Patients
Children's offers summer camps for children and teens with epilepsy and spina bifida.
When a child is diagnosed with an illness, it affects every member of his family. That’s why the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Neurosciences program offers support groups and educational resources for both parents and children who are dealing with a neurological condition. We are dedicated to providing family-centered care.
Support Services at Children's
In addition to the Children's Neurosciences program support, we offer family-centered care and support throughout our facilities—age appropriate play, toys and psychosocial support are available for the entire family.
