A New National Survey on Treatments: Approximately 25% of children and adults with autism have seizures, and another 50% may have sub-clinical seizures that are often undetected but may affect their intellectual functioning. This presentation will briefly review the causes and consequences of seizure in autism. The new results of a national survey of treatment of over 700 children and adults with seizures and autism will be presented. A comparison of the benefits and possible side effects of many medical, dietary, and nutritional treatments will be presented.
