CNNH Stories: Stanley, Stephon, and Karyn

Hear the stories of brothers Stanley and Stephon, and how coming to CNNH helped them manage their challenging behaviors at home and at school. Now both boys are doing extremely well. Stanley was the first student with autism to join the high school swimming team which captured the hearts of his community and inspired press coverage and the formation of special needs sports programs. Both boys have since medaled at the Special Olympics!

CNNH Stories: Maryanne

With two children on the autism spectrum, Maryanne shares how hectic life was before she found CNNH.

Maryanne and her family found relief through the collaborative model of care provided at CNNH. Everything she needed was in one location and the medical practitioner and therapists worked together to find a treatment protocol that worked for each of her children.

Maryanne also found community at CNNH, seeing neighbors and friends she had referred in the waiting room before and after her children’s appointments.

What Does Epilepsy Have To Do With Autism?


Epilepsy can occur in up to 40% of individuals with Autism, and even more have abnormal electroencephalograms (EEG). With this compelling connection, parents and caregivers might be curious to know if their child with Autism has Epilepsy and what to do about it. Epilepsy can complicate the care and management of individuals with Autism, but also provides insight into the biological causes and contributions to Autism and associated problem behaviors. This Webinar will examine the relationship between Autism and Epilepsy, including its signs and symptoms, the importance of early detection, how Epilepsy can provide insight into the manifestations of Autism, treatment options, and outcomes. This presentation will provide important information for parents, caregivers and professionals working with children and adults with Autism.
