Neurodevelopmental conditions such as autism are common among people with epilepsy. But despite the strong link, we know little about the common underlying causes and how to best treat seizures in autistic people.

In this month’s webinar, research experts and people with lived experience discussed the overlaps between epilepsy and autism, and how research could help more people live seizure-free. We also heard key findings from a new research project Epilepsy Research UK has funded alongside charities Autistica and Young Epilepsy. We commissioned the Autism and Epilepsy: Laying out the evidence dossier to address the lack of understanding of epilepsy in autism and highlight the need for greater research investment in this area.
