Epilepsy

Has your child been diagnosed with epilepsy? Epilepsy is a brain disorder that causes people to have recurring seizures. The seizures happen when clusters of nerve cells, or neurons, in the brain send out the wrong signals. People may have strange sensations and emotions or behave strangely. They may have violent muscle spasms or lose consciousness. Epilepsy has many possible causes, including illness, brain injury, and abnormal brain development. In many cases, the cause is unknown.

Children with epilepsy often also have learning and attention issues. In addition to these challenges, children with epilepsy may experience behavioral issues, developmental delays, social skills issues, or anxiety.

This page includes links to resources where you can learn more about epilepsy or find help for your child. We also encourage you to contact us for additional personalized support.
