Epilepsy can occur in up to 40% of individuals with Autism, and even more have abnormal electroencephalograms (EEG). With this compelling connection, parents and caregivers might be curious to know if their child with Autism has Epilepsy and what to do about it. Epilepsy can complicate the care and management of individuals with Autism, but also provides insight into the biological causes and contributions to Autism and associated problem behaviors. This Webinar will examine the relationship between Autism and Epilepsy, including its signs and symptoms, the importance of early detection, how Epilepsy can provide insight into the manifestations of Autism, treatment options, and outcomes. This presentation will provide important information for parents, caregivers and professionals working with children and adults with Autism.
