about

According to recent statistics, at least 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy, including more than 5.1 million Americans. Because there are so many different types of epilepsy—each with its own behavioral effects and treatment—it can be overwhelming for teens to handle. They need a reliable resource to guide them as they navigate the challenges of their condition.

In Epilepsy: The Ultimate Teen Guide, Kathlyn Gay dispels the myths, misconceptions, and misunderstandings about epilepsy and people who have the disorder. The second edition of this book provides up-to-date, positive, factual medical information and advice for young people and their families about how to live a normal life with epilepsy. Topics covered in this book include

  • symptoms of epilepsy
  • signs and factors that precipitate seizures
  • treatment methods
  • medications
  • management strategies

Real-life examples from teens who have epilepsy help readers understand how they can participate in normal activities. These teens also offer advice on how to tell friends, dates, teachers, or employers about the condition. Epilepsy: The Ultimate Teen Guide, Second Edition concludes with extensive lists of publications, websites, and organizations to help those with a diagnosis prepare for a hopeful future.
