Can I Ever Be Certain My Child Will Not Develop A Seizure Disorder?

Question: Can I ever be certain my child will not develop a seizure disorder?

Answer: There is no way to definitively determine whether or not a child will develop a seizure disorder. Most children with autism do not develop a seizure disorder. And many do not develop this seizure disorder during childhood but then go on to develop a seizure disorder during adolescence. The incidence of seizure disorder increases at a general population during adolescence as well for unclear reasons. But many hypothesize that is related to hormonal changes during puberty.
