Due to the Coronavirus, we need to move to practice teleNeurology.
Just try and you will soon realize that you can examine a child on video by observation without difficulty looking at:
CN– Eye & tongue movement, shoulder shrugging.
Gross motor: running, pushups (barrel wheel for younger children)
Fine motor: finger sequencing
Cerebellar: Tandem finger to nose, Rumberg. nystagmus
you can also look for birthmarks dysmorphic features, etc.
Ask parents assistance with Babinski if necessary. If interested in a digital hammer – contact me for more info.
