Hi, I have a 21/2 year old little boy with many brain abnormalities that can not be explained. He has issues with mobility, speech, vision, fine motor skills. He also has Epilepsy. Was wondering if there is anybody out there with similar symptoms?

My husband has Epilepsy. He has had it every sense he was born. He used to have problems with walking when he was child and wore braces, and as he grew up he had many seizures. His vision, speech and mobility are fine but he is hemiplegic on his left side. He had brain surgery 5to 6 years ago, and hasn't had a seizure sense.

Hi, my son is now 6, but has had seizures since 3 months. He was diagnosed with autism at 4 1/2. He too has had many developmental delays. His epilepsy is cryptogenic (unknown cause). He walked at 33 months and is non-verbal. My advice is to push for as much services as you can now and utilize any resources you can. Hope this helps.

My son has epilepsy and developmental delays. He had epilepsy since 4 mos. old. He later was diagnosed with Autism at 4 years old. He is now 6 and requires one on one attention at school in a classroom with other autistic children. My advise would be to seek out a developmental pediatrition to make sure you have a specific explanation or early diagnosis if any. What you need is to get all the therapy and services you can.

My son is 13 months. Had his first seizure at 10 months. HAs never crawled or walked. He was able to sit up better at 6 months than now. Otherwise his development is normal, but I guess time will tell. THe docs say that all the drugs and hospitalization have been a major set-back for him. It's tough having a kid with health problems. My husband and I are Christians and are praying that there will be something out there that'll cure him. Drugs aren't very nice!

Does your boy have problems with tracking and focusing on objects? My son does. He has LGS (lennox Gastaut) and he also has Celebral Palsy and Visual impairment. Melissa

My husband and I are caring for a foster child (girl, age almost seven) with epilepsy and marked developmental and speech delays. Even the child's neurologist hasn't told us how to help her to learn or grow best --- she's repeating kindergrten for the second time but still way behind in all ways. HELP!?!!

Hi, I have a seven month old son who has been having seizures since 3 months. He has had several hosptial stays and many medicine adjustments. He is currently on phenobarb and topomax, seems to be helping for now. He has significant developmental delays, we are really scared about his prognosis. He has had a normal MRI and many blood tests that have come back with nothing. Physical therapy in place for him weekly. Any one have any advice?

Dear Moms-I am reading over you e-mails and remembering my son's early years....he is now 27 and a delightful young man. He had infantile motor spasms-a seisure disorder that lasted many months. My advice is to follow your gut-you are the only one who knows what is best for your child. Love and play with your child-look for paid services---we are still broke by not doing that......

I have a 15yld boy. He had a stressed birth and suffered a brain heamorage. As a result of that he had mild cp, has cortical vision impairement epilepsy. His seizures started with very mild absenses and now has constant seizure activity and has a wide range of mild to severe clonic tonic seizures. Surgery is not an option because damage was in the visionary area of brain. Is on 5 medications and seizures not controlled.

I am an early childhood studies student and I have a few questions, if any of you would please give me your responses or opinions.

Do you feel that your child's school system supports your child's individual need? Why or why not?

Do you feel that your child is experiencing an unbiased environment while at school?

Hi all, my boy is 23mnths and has epilepsy. He's also developmentally delayed. it all started when he was 4mnths old. he had severe reflux and had to have a fundoplication. But when he woke up after op, he started seizing.
The dr's gave him so many meds just to stop it. He had it in clusters. After 4mnths in hospital, he was on 12 different AED's !!! He was in a semi-coma for more than 6mnths. That is just inhuman! We discharged him and weaned him off all the meds and started him on the ketogenic diet. Now, a year later, his epilepsy is under control and his development is catching up.
We trust and pray that our Almighty God wil heal him.
He is getting physio, feeding therapy (he has a gastrostomy tube as he stopped eating when he was in coma) and equitherapy(horse therapy) to help him catch up with development.
So far, everything he does is a miracle, as dr's said he wil never smile, walk, talk ect. And guess what...he is smiling like never before!!
Hold on to your faith. Nothing is impossible for our Lord.

Do no give him any milk or milk products, bread and anything associated with glutaine. Try and what happens after several months.

Have no support system from any of our family. I feel like im in a dark dark hole and cant escape. so depressed.......
