Raising a child is a big job — and if your child has epilepsy or seizures, you probably have special concerns.
In the United States, more than 470,000 children under age 18 live with epilepsy and seizures. Living with seizures is different for every person. For most kids, seizures can be easily controlled with medication — and some kids will actually grow out of their seizures and be seizure-free as adults. For other people, seizures are a lifelong challenge.
