Bringing CNS Members Together to Make Children’s Lives Better


The Child Neurology Foundation connects partners from all areas of the child neurology community so those navigating the journey of disease diagnosis, management, and care have the ongoing support from those dedicated to treatments and cures. Our expanding network of patients and caregivers, volunteers and advocates, researchers and clinicians is committed to helping one another along the path that leads to the best quality of care – and the highest quality of life – for every child.

CNF Vision: A world in which all children affected by neurologic disorders reach their full potential.

CNF Mission: To serve as a collaborative center of education and support for children and their families living with neurologic conditions.


CNF Grants and Awards

The Child Neurology Foundation has awarded over 3.5 million dollars to the research endeavors of over 70 young investigators, aimed at identifying treatments and cures for pediatric neurologic diseases.

In 2016, for the first time, the Awards granted in the past by the Child Neurology Foundation were added to those given by the Child Neurology Society (CNS). Child neurologists of the CNS and CNF have developed a specialized committee to fulfill this function with the following Awards and Grants offered to members of the CNS.
