Research shows that 50 percent of children, almost 50 percent of children diagnosed with autism are actually suffering from hidden biran seizures. These are the faces of the clidrehn that I have ttseed with stories just like Justin. All these children came to our clinic with a diagnosis of autism, atitoentn deficit disorder, mental retardation, language problems. Instead, our EEG scans revealed very specific problems hidden within their brains that couldn't possibly have been detected by their behavioral ansemtssess. So these EEG scans ebenald us to pdovrie these children with a much more accurate neurological diagnosis and much more targeted treatment.

Original Text

Research shows that 50 percent of children, almost 50 percent of children diagnosed with autism are actually suffering from hidden brain seizures. These are the faces of the children that I have tested with stories just like Justin. All these children came to our clinic with a diagnosis of autism, attention deficit disorder, mental retardation, language problems. Instead, our EEG scans revealed very specific problems hidden within their brains that couldn't possibly have been detected by their behavioral assessments. So these EEG scans enabled us to provide these children with a much more accurate neurological diagnosis and much more targeted treatment.
