Epilepsy What? – A disorder of the brain.
When nerve cells suddenly begin to fire together, a wave of electrical energy sweeps through the brain, causing a seizure.
-Seizures interfere with the brains normal functions. They cause a child to have a sudden change in consciousness, movement, or sensation.
-Seizure Disorder can be used interchangeably with epilepsy.
-Having one seizure doesn’t mean a person is epileptic. It must occur more than once and have an unknown cause.
