Children with Seizures

Synopsis

"Seizures can be very frightening, and often leave people feeling unnerved and helpless. In this concise, accessible handbook, Martin Kutscher provides all the information you need to approach seizures from a position of strength. He first explores the types and causes of seizures, and offers practical advice on what to observe and do during an attack. Medical concepts and technical terms are also clearly explained, along with the available tests and treatments. Emotional and social issues that frequently arise are positively addressed, and there are chapters for kids and teens to read themselves or with their parents. The book goes on to cover the most common epilepsy syndromes in detail, and provides a helpful list of further reading and useful contacts. This informal and upbeat book is an accessible, reassuring and informative read which will be indispensable for families, friends, teachers, and therapists of children with seizures."
