NF Fact of the Day May 12th

Treatments for other conditions associated with NF1 are aimed at controlling or relieving symptoms.  Headache and seizures are treated with medications.  Since children with NF1 have a higher than average risk for learning disabilities, they should undergo a detailed neurological exam before they enter school.  Once these children are in school, teachers or parents who suspect there is evidence of one or more learning disabilities should request an evaluation that includes an IQ test and the standard range of tests to evaluate verbal and spatial skills.
