Seizures and Epilepsy and Their Relationship to Autism Spectrum Disorders
Matson, Johnny L.; Neal, Daniene
Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, v3 n4 p999-1005 Oct-Dec 2009
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are serious neurodevelopmental disorders which often co-occur with intellectual disabilities. A disorder which is strongly correlated with both of these disabilities are seizures and epilepsy. The purpose of this review was to provide an overview of available research on seizures and epilepsy in the ASD population and to provide a status report on recent trends in research. Among these topics are prevalence, nosology, etiology, and autistic regression. Strengths and weaknesses of the current, available literature are discussed.
