Answer

Pediatric neuropsychologists can assess intellectual function and educational needs and advise on nonpharmacologic management of behavioral problems. Pediatric psychiatrists can advise on pharmacologic management of behavioral problems. Neurosurgeons can assist in the placement of a vagus nerve stimulator and assess the patient as a candidate for corpus callosotomy or focal resection. Dietitians can assist in the institution and maintenance of the ketogenic diet.
