Abstract

The authors present preliminary findings on the effects of surgery on the development of early nonverbal social communication skills in eight children with intractable infantile spasms. After a mean follow-up of 15.2 months, there was no statistically significant change in the post-surgical nonverbal communication behavior of these children beyond the expected developmental change. Implications of these findings for the developmental impairment associated with infantile spasms are discussed.
