Presented by Arthur Taggart
Everything you want to know (and more!) about recurring seizures, seizure recognition, and first aid for seizures. An overview of the international classification system for seizures will make you a better observer and recorder of seizure activity. Differential diagnoses, behavioral events, and medication issues will be covered in addition to common psychosocial issues affecting people with epilepsy and you will view video footage of all the major seizure types. Get answers to all your questions during the interactive Q & A.
This session is geared towards families with children served by CLTS, case managers, and service providers.
