Infantile Spasms Awareness Week (ISAW) - DECEMBER 5-11, 2014


In 2009, the Child Neurology Foundation proudly announced the creation of Infantile Spasms Awareness Week. The goal of IS Awareness Week is to provide pediatricians, child neurologists, parents and caregivers with objective educational tools which will increase awareness and understanding of infantile spasms. Early and aggressive treatment can impact the prognosis of infants diagnosed with IS. This important educational initiative will help to ensure that physicians have an increased awareness and understanding of IS. It will also make much needed educational materials available to the parents and caregivers of afflicted infants.

Highlights from the CNF Conference 2013

Dr Lawrence Brown - Infantile Spasms "Infantile Spasms Awareness Week is a great project for many reasons. Most obviously, it shows the importance of the recognition of such a potentially devastating disorder. It also shows the fact that industry and the child neurology community can cooperate in a responsible and ethical way and advance the causes in which we both believe."
