Hi everyone my daughter is 1 year and 5 months and was diagnosed with seizures at 1 year. I feel that my daughter is having a delay in learning specifically at this time her speech. I don't feel that she is up to par with most children her age. She was put on Phenobarbitol 5 months ago which I noticed makes her extremely hyper and I feel this is the reason she is behind. She can't sit still for longer than 5 seconds. To try to get her to concentrate is next to impossible. Is anyone else having this problem? And is there anyone out there who has been through this and has seen there child catch up with there age group? The reason I ask this is because they plan to treat my daughter at least untill she is 3 and I hope her ability to learn things becomes easier with time! I really hope she catches back up before she starts school.
