What the Expert Says:

Having seizures can be scary and may make a child feel different from other kids and that can lead to emotional and/or behavioral issues.

In addition, seizures themselves may affect the brain and contribute to behavioral problems.

If you are concerned either with your child's seizures or behavioral/emotional being, please talk with his or her regular health care provider.
