Epilepsy: Handbook for Patient and Family

This book provided straightforward, invaluable information to the family when faced with their child's seizure disorder. It explains all the medical terms that our neurologist seemed to throw around without explanation (thereby scaring you!). It is optimistic and practical. It spans everything from how to deal with seizures, the pros and cons of different treatment, and how your child can live a full life. Most of all this book will put you at ease and educate you as to how to proceed with your child's medical treatment. It will also help guide you with what to tell others - the school, babysitters, grandparents. Definitely a must read for parents dealing with a child with seizures!
