Video Presentation - Neurological Comorbidities in Autism Spectrum Disorder - by Dr. Margaret Bauman, of Boston University Medical Center

In the general population, less than 1% of children develop clinical seizures, whereas more than 35% of children with autism do so by adolescence. Despite the high prevalence of seizures and epilepsy in children with autism, there is little information regarding effective and safe antiepileptic treatments. To shed light on the effectiveness of seizures treatments for children with autism we developed a relatively easy to complete on-line seizure survey for parents, and collected information from over 1000 respondents.
