When young people are told that they have a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) they usually have lots of questions. Some young people may have never heard of the condition and most will never have met anybody else who has this condition.

Landau Kleffner syndrome

Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS) is a rare form of epilepsy occurring in children, usually between the ages of three and nine years, that affects the child’s ability to understand and use language.
