The APESAC (Association of Parents of Children with the syndrome anticonvulsant) was founded in 2011 with a simple premise: nobody knew about the effects of valproic acid upon the foetus, and families were struggling to get a proper diagnosis and appropriate management.
Today it has about 250 families affected by the syndrome in France and Belgium.
Scientific Council is represented by Dr. Toulemonde (Normandy psychiatrist), Dr. Ben-Ari (Researcher at Inserm in Marseille), Dr. Lemonnier (Head of CRA Brest), Dr. Signoret (pediatrician Annecy).
The association was created to promote and recognize the effects on the foetus caused by valproic acid with governments, health authorities, doctors, families.
Diagnose those affected with reference centres with trained doctors-diagnosed children.
Listen to distressed families cope with the disease and try together to find solutions to relieve everyday by sharing our experiences.
