“Children are growing and evolving and developing, and their brain is changing over the years. And seizures will change.”
––Angus Wilfong, MD, pediatric neurologist
As your child develops and grows, so does his or her brain. As the brain changes, it is likely that the seizures associated with LGS will change as well. According to Dr. Angus Wilfong, pediatric neurologist, children will typically develop the types of seizures associated with LGS when they are approaching school age. As they get older, seizures may become less frequent. "Many times the most frequent seizures are during school age," says Dr. Wilfong. "As children pass through adolescence and become adult age, the seizures overall become less frequent."
