The Epilepsy Family Support Group provides education support for families of children with epilepsy and other seizure disorders. Monthly support group meetings are held, child care and dinner are also provided.
In addition to formal networks, parents helping parents are a key part of the Epilepsy Foundation's programs nationwide.
The design of the programs may vary slightly from location to location, depending on the preferences of the local community.
Some parent groups prefer a structured program of formal meetings, with outside speakers; others are designed to be informal get-togethers for parents to meet others, share experiences and grow together. Whatever the design, the goal is the same: to help parents help their children with seizures and maintain a loving family environment for all its members.
There are groups that meet all over the country- check online to find the group closest to you.
