Is COVID-19 exacerbating everyday challenges for kids with #ADHD? Verywell recently spoke with our Michael Reardon, M.D., pediatric neurologist at Child Neurology Consultants of Austin.

"The symptoms of ADHD make pandemic life more challenging, thereby increasing the stress and the risk for mental health problems—a vicious cycle," said Dr. Reardon. Read more of his interview below ⤵️

About a third of cheerleading injuries are concussions, caused by hitting the ground or another cheerleader. Often it's the flyer, the person in the air, but sometimes it's the base, the person supporting the flyer, who can get hit in the head by the flyer. The tumblers, those cheerleaders who do gymnastic passes, also can run into each other or fall.

However, athletes don't have to hit something with their heads to have a concussion, our Katherine Labiner, M.D., of Child Neurology Consultants of Austin told the Austin American-Statesman. A head moving back and forth quickly--similar to whiplash--can also cause a concussion.

On this #ThankfulThursday we want to highlight our friends at the Child Neurology Consultants of Austin who are bronze sponsors at our upcoming pediatric brain injury conference, #MakingConnections on Oct. 23.

They shared a heartfelt article about the impact the conference has on families dealing with the aftermath of a brain injury. The article includes an interview with a Team Luke Hope for Minds family, the Finchers.

“Having a child with a brain injury is very isolating. This conference brings us all together and we can easily talk about what we are going through with other families that understand,” said the Fincher family. “We feel like we are in a safe place and that we all fit in.”

“All of the speakers are wonderful and the doctors are all motivated to help give us a glimmer of hope. That is what this conference is all about, hope!”

This , learn about our amazing patient Arabella! Arabella has a complicated form of epilepsy that has been difficult to treat. Medicines weren't effective. Her family visited doctors all around Texas and read everything they could find on epilepsy. During the National Epilepsy conference in California, her mother first learned about CBD oil and was recommended to visit Dr. Karen Keough.

“Not every child responds to CBD. We see it as another tool in our toolbox of options for treating epilepsy. When it does work, like in Arabella’s case who was once a refractory epilepsy patient and now is controlled, that is the best possible outcome. I have several patients who have had this level of response, and I am looking for more like them,” said Dr. Keough.

Arabella’s mother says that until recently, her daughter couldn’t talk, walk without stumbling, or do most things that kids her age were doing. And now — Arabella is like any “typical” five-year-old. She runs around, loves playing princesses and never stops talking. Read more about Arabella's story here:
