In many cases, epilepsy begins in child­hood. The Epilepsy League has produced a new infor­ma­tion flyer for parents and family members. 

For parents, a diagnosis of epilepsy is always a shock, and there are lots of questions: What are the chances of my child becoming seizure free? What methods of diagnosis are advised? Will my son/daughter have to take medica­tion for the rest of their life and are there any other treat­ment methods? Are they likely to have devel­op­mental difficulties?

The new flyer from the Swiss Epilepsy League contains in-depth infor­ma­tion for parents to read and to help prepare them for their next appoint­ment with the doctor. It can be downloaded or ordered in German, French, Italian and English; the Epilepsy League is pleased to send small numbers of flyers free of charge within Switzerland.
