Research has shown that one of the greatest variables that determine social adjustment, academic success and the psychological well being of children with epilepsy is the response of their family and friends. How a family copes with the diagnosis can have a greater effect on the child’s reaction and behaviour that the severity and frequency of seizures. Although epilepsy is a complex condition, it is manageable and there are several things you can do to improve you child’s adjustment.
Our children’s fact sheets have been developed specifically for children. Topics such as ‘My Epilepsy’, ‘Looking after your self’ and ‘Seizure First Aid’ as well as some others, speak to the child newly diagnosed in such a way they understand their condition and h ow to take care of themselves.
