Seizures and Epilepsy in Children, fourth edition

A Comprehensive Guide

The most comprehensive and practical guide available for caregivers of children who have seizures and epilepsy, now completely updated.

No child's life should be defined by seizures. For more than 30 years, parents, caregivers, patients, and health care providers have trusted Seizures and Epilepsy in Children to provide comprehensive, science-based information, and practical answers to the most common questions about these conditions. In this new edition, completely revised and updated, a team of experts from one of the leading medical centers in the world offers guidance on:

• diagnostic testing and the latest treatments
• recommendations for the best devices, apps, and websites
• driving, health insurance, and playing sports
• navigating school and other environments
• mental health issues and counseling
• coping with disability
• side effects from medications

This new edition also features dedicated chapters on diet, complementary and alternative medicine, and rescue medicines. Seizures and Epilepsy in Children is the go-to resource for caregivers and families with children who have epilepsy and seizures.

Endorsements

"The authors have significant expertise in the diagnosis and management of epilepsy. The book will educate families on epilepsy and its management and outcome. It is written in a common sense and understandable manner. The diagnostic criteria and medication discussion is solidly based on good science."

- Max Wiznitzer, MD, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine

"An excellent resource for families. Seizures and Epilepsy in Children makes information on seizures and epilepsy understandable to families of children with epilepsy and discusses the many practical issues and questions that come up in day to day life when living or growing up with epilepsy. This excellent book conveys many important things that parents of children with epilepsy should know—and that are probably not effectively conveyed during doctor's visits."

- Sudha K. Kessler, MD, MSCE, Program Director, Pediatric Epilepsy Fellowship, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
