The University of Colorado NES Clinic does not currently treat pediatric patients. Once the individual seeking treatment is 18 years old we can accept referrals. Once the referral is received with accompanying medical records (i.e. diagnostic EEG and brain imaging) we will reach out to discuss scheduling options. Please find resources and research verified by our team below for those experiencing NES/FND and seeking treatment now, or interested in learning more about pediatric NES/FND.
