7-1-2009 | New children’s book launched

Everything a child needs to know about epilepsy, a new book for helping children understand their epilepsy has been published by Brainwave The Irish Epilepsy Association.

The book is written by Dr. Chinnaiah Yemula and Professor Frank Besag and tells the story of Seamus and Niamh and the journey they have to follow when they are diagnosed with epilepsy. This book is written for school-age children to help them understand more about epilepsy, treatment and lifestyle changes. It is packed with colourful illustrations, fun and humour to engage the interest of young readers. Parents, carers or teachers may find this a useful learning tool when trying to educate children about epilepsy.

Thanks to all those who participated in the Lisa Bassett Memorial walk in Tullamore, which helped raise the funds needed to produce this book.

Copies of Everything a child needs to know about epilepsy are available from Head Office and all Brainwave offices nationwide for €8 per copy or you can also purchase online from the Brainwave Shop.
