Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Regarding night terror try to check if she is facing any stress at home or at school. It could be a problem with the teacher at school or friends or parents. Even small things which we do not feel that it could cause stress could cause some stress in child.

It could be small quarrel between parents or a threatening school mate.. Please find out what is causing stress and try to avoid this.

If she has seizures the cause should be evaluated and treated with antiepileptics

Hope this helps.
Take care
