Autism and Epilepsy
Autism is a neurological disorder involving difficulties relating to and communicating with other persons. About 1/3 of children with autism also have epilepsy. Children with autism often have abnormal EEGs, as do children with epilepsy, which may add to the difficulty of diagnosing each of these conditions in the same child. Other more detailed tests will often be needed to determine whether the child with autism is also exhibiting abnormal brain wave activity because of epilepsy.

To preserve our local epilepsy programming, Clinic to Community, and the Epilepsy Clinic, we have set to raise awareness and funds one cupcake at a time
