Services and Supports For Parents and Families

The EAWCP is committed to helping children diagnosed with epilepsy or seizure disorder and the child’s parents, siblings, and other family members. We understand the challenges families face when a child has a seizure disorder.

Parents who learn that their child has epilepsy or seizure disorder may react with a range of emotions, from fear and anxiety to denial and disbelief. Love, support, and understanding between family members and from friends will help adjust the family to this condition.

The EAWCP Children and Family Services Coordinator and Regional Coordinators are here to work with you and your family on a one-on-one basis to help you overcome some of the challenges you face daily. Services include workshops for family members to learn more about epilepsy, telephone support, and referrals to other community services. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff members provide a variety of supportive and education services for both your child and your family.

To request assistance and discuss your child’s needs, contact the EAWCP office in your region.
