hopefully they will run some tests to determine the cause of the seizures as well as intensity, such as EEG, MRI/CAT. they will likely give a neurological evaluation, which should include testing of age-appropriate neurological responses. please understand that you are the best advocate for your child - if you do not feel you are getting the attention and care your child needs, demand it. i learned that lesson a little late. how long have the seizures been happening? my experience in this area, unfortunately, has to do with my two-month old being nearly killed as a shaken baby - i didn't know the truth about that until about 9 months later - i just knew she was having seizures and that i was treated like a criminal and no one answered my questions until much later. the ped neuro was a jackass (he referred to my daughter as "it"). if there is another seizure you may want to consider the ER. i had a boyfriend with epilepsy.
