Hi!
A child with mild PDD may have seizures but normal EEG or the child may not have seizures and yet have abnormal EEG. Hence, everything has to be clinically correlated. Hence, if the child does not have seizures he may not require anti-convulsants. At times, an EEG is abnormal enough to suspect mild seizures which either go unnoticed or are localized like a tremor or occur in sleep. Hence, do discuss this with your child's treating doctor. Anticonvulsants also have side effects. So, its best to start them only if they are required. Take care!
