Hope for Autism and Other Neurological Challenges with Dr. John Mantovani (Ep. 8)

Have you noticed that something different might be occurring with your child or grandchild and wonder if there is a problem? If so, these questions are not uncommon, and many people are not aware of what to look out for when detecting a neurological condition in young children. 

In this episode, Barbara Archer is joined by Dr. John Mantovani, a child neurologist, and chair of the Missouri department of mental health’s commission on autism spectrum disorders based in St. Louis, Missouri. He received his medical degree from the University of Missouri Columbia school of medicine with a fellowship at Washington University School of Medicine and Pediatric Neurology. 

Dr. John Mantovani has gained his expertise in this area as a past president of the American Academy for cerebral palsy and developmental medicine and a current member of the American academy of pediatrics council on developmental disabilities. After giving over 200 lectures, both nationally and internationally, with many peer-reviewed research articles under his wing, he is here to talk to us about the neurological development of children. 

Dr. John Mantovani discusses: 

  • The main reasons someone would seek out a pediatric neurologist
  • How to identify behavioral challenges in young children
  • What developmental support can look like at such a young age
  • His experience in this field and helping young children improve their lives
