Mittan, Robert J.
Exceptional Parent, v40 n8 p33-35 Aug 2010
This is a six part article intended to give parents the information and strategies they need to cope with their child with epilepsy who may have school learning problems. Epilepsy and seizures affect the classroom in unique ways that can make the learning experience especially challenging for some kids. Fortunately, much can be done to give the child a better learning experience and more self-confidence in the classroom. The trick is to figure out which of a dozen possible ways epilepsy is affecting a particular child's learning and then applying the right solution to the problem. This article helps parents understand how to identify and evaluate possible learning difficulties in their child and then what to do about them.
