An A to Z glossary of disabilities

A form of epilepsy which affects 1 and 5 of every 100 children who suffer seizures.

Lennox-Gastaut syndrome is difficult to treat and known as an ‘epileptic and developmental encephalopathy’ because the epileptic seizures and the abnormal EEG (electroencephalogram - a test used to find problems related to electrical activity of the brain.) are thought to be important in these children’s’ developmental delay and learning difficulties.
