Behavioral seizures manage by VNS

Is there a diagnosis termed behavioral seizures?  Has anyone heard of treating behavioral seizures with VNS (vagal nerve stimulator)?  I ahve a child with intractable epilepsy which a mother is using magnetic wand to activate the VNS during child's poor behavior.  Is this acceptable practice?

My son just had the vns put in on June 24th this year.and will be turned on this tuesday the 7th of July.

the vns is also used for people with depression when the medicines don't work for them along with people who have seizures and medicines are not working.

you can goggle vns and read about it.
