Resource Library

For people with epilepsy and their families, comprehensive information on the disorder is often a valuable, yet hard-to-find, asset. Living with epilepsy often requires special services to help better understand what epilepsy is and to learn how to deal with it. EAWCP can provide information beyond what is available in physician offices and in most cases the public library.

The EAWCP maintains an Epilepsy Resource Library of books and brochures. Please contact us if you would like to borrow any of these materials.
