The Residency in Neurological Pediatrics is a clinical specialty focused on preventing, diagnosing, treating, rehabilitating and studying neurological disorders in children and adolescents in their different stages of growth and development, such as metabolic problems, malformations of the central nervous system, convulsive crises, and neuromuscular, motor, language, learning and other problems related to neurodevelopment.

The training of specialists in Pediatric Neurology is particularly relevant for the community because the neurological, pathological processes that are most prevalent in the population begin in infancy and adolescence or are characteristic of these phases, such as epilepsy (1.5%), learning and communication disorders (5 to 10%), infantile cerebral paralysis (5/1000), mental retardation, pervasive developmental disorders (autism) (1/125), congenital malformations, infections of the central nervous system, craneo-encephalitic trauma and other disorders. Approximately 33% of the population of Mexico is under 15 years old (INEGI 2003), but there are currently fewer than 200 pediatric neurologists in the nation. In fact, certain states have only one pediatric neurologist and others none at all.
