Epilepsy is a condition in which disturbances to the brain’s normal electrical activity cause recurrent seizures or brief episodes of altered consciousness. Epilepsy comes in many forms and each person’s experience is different. The incidence of epilepsy in children is estimated to be 700 in every 100,000 children under 16 years.
