Living with Epilepsy


Children and families living with Epilepsy need to take into consideration certain lifestyle factors when managing their epilepsy.


Children with Epilepsy are able to have fulfilling lives. However, particular attention needs to be paid to activities that may cause harm if a seizure were to occur. There are also lifestyle approaches that children and teenagers can try to adopt, in order to minimise the potential risk of seizures.


This section will cover some of the issues raised when dealing with the day to day living with Epilepsy.
