What is Infantile Spasms
Infantile Spasms Baby In 2009, the Child Neurology Foundation announced the creation of infantile Spasms (IS) Awareness Week.

Early and aggressive treatment can impact the prognosis of infants diagnosed with IS. Unfortunately, many pediatricians and even child neurologists are unfamiliar with this rare form of epilepsy.

The goal of IS Awareness week is to provide pediatricians, child neurologists, parents and caregivers with objective educational tools which will increase awareness and understanding of infantile spasms, so children can get the crucial medical care necessary to improve positive outcomes.

This year's IS Awareness week will take place October 24th-30th in Savannah Georgia.
