    Up to 30% of all children have undiagnosed seizure disorders that cause serioius behavior challenges!

    National Parenting Products Award (NAPPA) Award Winner!

    Up to 30% of all children have undiagnosed seizure disorders, to a great extent because they are difficult to diagnose and due to a lack of awareness and understanding. By inadvertently allowing children's brains to "silently seize," we are robbing children of their ability to function well. When treated, many children show amazing gains in expressive language and comprehension. Many begin to speak and learn as many troubling behaviors begin to disappear.
