Identifying Seizures in Children

Monica Gonzalez, Epilepsy Advocate at Epilepsy Foundation of Florida, highlights parents know their children better than anybody else, so they know when something doesn't seem right.

"Obviously, a generalized Tonic-Clonic (Grand Mal) Seizure is pretty obvious, it's a very violent seizing convulsion and parents shouldn't be afraid to go to their primary care physician," she says and points out one in 26 children are diagnosed with epilepsy, and 50% of them are diagnosed before the age of 10.
