“Ami” will see the active participation of Child Neuropsychiatry (professor Roberta Battini, female doctor Guja Astrea, female doctor Annarita Ferrari and Dr. Emanuele Bartolini and neuropsychomotricity therapists, speech therapists and psychologists interested from time to time) and Pediatrics (Dr. Alessandro Orsini and doctor Alice Bonuccelli, neurologists, doctor Maria Elisa Di Cicco, pulmonologist, and other pediatric skills from time to time concerned).
Doctor Astrea and Doctor Orsini will be the “Case managers” of the children involved and therefore coordinators of the various assessments and the various insights required from time to time on the basis of the children’s needs, with the help and involvement of all the specialist figures necessary (geneticist, pulmonologist, cardiologist, endocrinologist, physiotherapist, dietician, neuropsychologist, speech therapist, physiatrist, etc.).
