It is recommended that adults talk to children about epilepsy, whether the epilepsy is the child's or the adult's. Talking to children about epilepsy helps them to be involved and can make things easier.
This publication explains how to talk to children about your epilepsy or their own epilepsy. Talking to teenagers can encourage them to take an active role in managing their own epilepsy. The publication also outlines how to speak to a child about a sibling's epilepsy and to consider who else needs to know about your child's or your own epilepsy.
Epilepsy Ireland would like to sincerely thank The Ireland Funds for funding this publication.
