  Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum.

I am so sorry that u and ur child r going thru this, it can be quite a frustrating and scary journey...but know u r not alone.

We do have a list of Drs, but it does not indicate which ones will treat children...I know Dr Oro does not....but the Drs at TCI, and Dr Henderson in MD do....there is also a Dr Frim in Chicago.......outside that u will have to research them, plus the rest on the list, u should be able to see the list on this page.

May I ask what symptoms lead to the testing, and which tests were done to date ?
