Strength in Struggle – CDKL5

According to the Epilepsy Foundation, CDKL5 deficiency disorder (or CDD) is a genetic condition that manifests in several ways, including triggering seizures in infants just weeks, days, or even hours after they’re born.

Kaitlyn, 33, learned that her daughter, Judith, had CDD when she had convulsions shortly after her birth. Along with her epilepsy, Judith, now 11, also has trouble focusing on faces, moving on her own, and speaking with others. Although Kaitlyn initially felt overwhelmed as a new mother, she shares with Medical Stories how her family’s support gave her the strength she needed to care for her daughter.

Featuring renowned experts: Elia M. Pestana Knight, Pediatric Epilepsy, Cleveland Clinic Epilepsy Center; and Orrin Devinsky, director of the NYU Langone Comprehensive Epilepsy Center.
