Parents and Caregivers
Whether you are the parent of a child with epilepsy or the caretaker of a person with epilepsy, you have come to the right place.
About 326,000 American children under the age of 15 have epilepsy and 200,000 new cases of epilepsy are diagnosed each year. Epilepsy affects people at different ages and in different ways.
For some, it will be a temporary problem, easily controlled with medication and outgrown after a few years. For others, it may be a lifelong challenge affecting many areas of life.
