English Description

Filmed entirely in Spanish, epileptologists; pediatric neurologists; educators; therapists; Epilepsy Foundation representatives; and many families of children with epilepsy talk about how to manage this chronic condition.

Many children living with epilepsy speak out themselves.

The films discuss and illustrate different types of seizures; diagnostic procedures; treatment options; doctors; the impact of epilepsy on development and learning; school; safety; epilepsy in the family and community; stigma; services provided by the Epilepsy Foundation; assistance available through state and federal agencies; the importance of educating yourself and advocating for your child, and encouraging his or her unique interests and talents.

  • Part I discusses the diagnosis.
  • Part II deals with treatments.
  • Part III explores how to cope with the situation.
  • An Appendix illustrates and explains First Aid for seizures.

These videos help prepare Spanish speaking parents to take the best advantage of their medical appointments. Not only are they informative; but they are also inspiring as families of children with epilepsy share their courage, humor, faith and resolve.
