: I work with a 20-year-old male student with severe CP. He sometimes laughs at inappropriate times - like when I'm reading something sad or trying to teach something serious. I have two questions: 1) How much control to people with CP have over this?, and 2) If they have little or no control over it, are there preventative measures that my student can use?
MY DAUGHTER ALSO HAS C.P., THERE IS A SEIZURE CALLED "JOLASTIC SEIZURES" THEY ARE LAUGHING SEIZURES, YOUR STUDENT MIGHT NEED TO BE SEEN BY A NEUROLOGIST TO DETERMINE IF HIS LAUGHING IS THE RESULT OF "JOLASTIC" LAUGHING SEIZURES, IF SO, THEN HE DOES NOT HAVE CONTROL, BUT SEIZURES MEDICATIONS COULD POSSIBLEY HELP.
