Roses for Autism

From their recent newsletter Roses for Autism writes, 

Approximately 1/4 to 1/3 of individuals with autism also have some form of seizure disorder. Seizure types may range from grand mal seizures (loss of consciousness and uncontrolled muscle contraction/rigidity which last for several minutes) to absence seizures (brief losses of consciousness). Individuals with autism tend not to have their first seizure until age 10 or older. Seizures that co-occur with autism are treated with anti-convulsive medications just as they are for people who "just" have epilepsy. Rarely, seizure conditions such as Landau-Kleffner syndrome cause autistic-like presentations. Seizures have been described as "having a thunderstorm in your brain" and are the result of irregular neurolo- electrical activity.
