Q.

Possible Dravet's Syndrome?

My son possibly has Dravet's Syndrome, are there any Support groups in South Africa?

Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

Dravet's syndrome is a rare form of epilepsy. I am not aware of any special support groups in SA although you should ask your paediatrician whether there is an epilepsy support group in your area. Otherwise you will find support groups on the internet. Try Google for this.
