Table 1:
Cumulative probability of development of epilepsy in subgroups of children with autism as a function of age and severity of the underlying brain dysfunction
Figure 1:
Overlaps between autism with or without epilepsy and other disorders of children with or with out language regression. Although an attempt has been made to suggest the relative prevalence of each disorder by the size of its oval, the sizes of the symbols and overlaps should not be taken literally because they were constrained by the need to show the multiple overlaps clearly (e.g., develop- mental language disorder should be larger, ESES smaller). AREE, autistic regression with an epileptiform EEG; BRE, benign rolandic epilepsy; DD, disintegrative disorder; VAA, verbal auditory agnosia
