Alan was normal when he was born, but he began to have epileptic seizures when he was 4 and half months old. When he was 1 and half years old, his parents found his speech and intelligence level were not as good as the other kids his age. He was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3. He had a few irregular epileptic seizures before he was 4 years old. He could play his favorite games with his parents and had emotional interactions like shaking hands or kissing his parent’s cheeks. He had more epileptic seizures in a 2 year period and they occurred every 2 or 4 days, and each time, there were 3 to 5 seizures lasting 30-50 seconds. When they stopped, Alan would feel tired, and he had a bad temper when he was trying to sleep. When he was awake, he was over active, easily upset and hyperactive. He had excessive salivation which he was prescribed medication for. He was taken to America for treatment but nothing was effective. Currently, Alan yells a lot but his vocabulary is very limited and he’s difficult to understand. Sometimes he is able to say papa, mama or hi, and does react when his name is called out. His attention span is very short and he doesn’t cooperate very well. Sometimes he can understand orders such as sit down or lie down. He is not able to express his feelings to let others know that he’s thirsty or needs to use the bathroom. When he is hungry he is able to find the food by himself. Alan’s parents wanted him to have the best care possible so he was brought to our center and diagnosed with autism and epilepsy.
