Charity information

Organisation for Anti-Convulsant Syndrome (OACS)

OACS is a charity set up in January 1999 to help children and their families affected by Fetal Anti-Convulsant Syndrome. This is caused when a woman with Epilepsy has to take her medication during her pregnancy and the medication affects the child. This can cause learning and behavioural problems, short term memory difficulties, speech and language problems, fine and gross motor control difficulties and many more including Spina Bifida, cleft lip and palate etc...

We are here to help with Education and Health issues, we have a selection of literature availbale to help explain about our work and the condition or just to talk to should a parent need a shoulder to cry on.

Founded 1999
