Searching for ACC experts


#1

I am looking for some advice. My daughter Caroline, in addition to C-ACC, has seizures and has been having behavioral problems since starting first grade this year with an IEP. We are interested in getting second opinions in regards to the adequacy of her IEP, how to best deal with the behavioral issues we are having with her, and also in regards to her seizure medications and how they might be affecting her behavior and ability to learn. We are looking for those who would be considered the experts in the fields of 1)Children with ACC and/or 2)Pediatric neurology that would be willing to meet with us and/or review Caroline’s case. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Caroline has a pediatric psychiatrist and neurologist in our town but we feel that we need to get second opinions, preferably from those with experience in dealing with kids with ACC, to make sure that we are doing all we can for her.

hoseyjr,

I am a 38 yr old with ACC diagnosed only 2 years ago. I’m not usre where you are from state wise, but I do know of two people out in California that are studying those of us with ACC and would be able to give you more info or even an evaluation if you’d like. I’d be happy to give you those names if you like.
