Children with epilepsy can grow into independent, effective adults. To do this, they need discipline to build appropriate behavior, social skills so that they will be accepted, and the educational background that provides the basis for eventual employment. The goal of this book is to provide you with the tools to discipline your child, to support social development and to negotiate the educational system, being an effective advocate for your child.
