If your child has been diagnosed with Epilepsy, he/she can still lead a normal life. Most children with seizures do not usually have any physical limitations or activity restrictions. However, there is a chance that your child could lose consciousness during a seizure, so there are certain circumstances and activities that should be avoided or closely monitored.
Your child’s life could be at risk if he/she were to lose consciousness during certain activities.
Your child may have increased seizures when he/she is sick, running a fever, sleep-deprived, or under stress. It is also very important that your child not miss his/her medication because this can result in increased seizures.
1 in 6 children suffers from some kind of neurological disorder. The Neuroscience Center at Arkansas Children’s Hospital has a team of more than 200 health care professionals who work together to provide comprehensive neurological care to children all over the country.
