Navigating life with epilepsy can seem daunting. These resources provide basic information about epilepsy for those with a new diagnosis, including details about the different types of epilepsy and tips for the parents of children who have just experienced their first seizure.
The Epilepsy Foundation website features a broad range of information for those living with epilepsy. Many of the resources on this page can be found on the Epilepsy Foundation site.
Causes of Epilepsy
While in some cases the cause of a child's epilepsy may be very clear, there are many instances where it's not.
Kennedy Krieger's Neurogenetics Clinic specializes in finding genetics causes for brain disorders. This information can help parents who want to understand the cause of their child's neurological issues, plan future pregnancies, know if other medical problems should be screened for and better understand what to expect in the future.
The Epilepsy Foundation also provides a guide on what causes epilespy and seizures.
