Re: 11 year old autistic child having seizures

grandma,
It is not uncommon for an autistic child to develop a seizure disorder. The most recent figure I have seen is one in four will develop a seizure disorder usually during puberty.
My son was quite a bit older when he began having seizures. It been about 27 months since he had his first. So, we are relatively newbies.

Thank you for replying to my posting. The cause of the seizures may be her approaching puberty; however, the doctors don't tell that to my daughter. Nor has anyone suggested to her how she will manage when my granddaughter starts menstruating. Thanks again.
