APESAC:

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.
