Epilepsy: The Ultimate Teen Guide

At least 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy, many of them teenagers. There are many different types of epilepsy, and each type has different behavioral effects and is treated with different methods. This book, written specifically for a teen audience, dispels the myths, misconceptions, and misunderstandings about epilepsy and people who have the disorder. It provides positive, factual medical information and advice for teens on living a normal life by understanding the symptoms; being alert to the signs and factors that precipitate seizures; and educating themselves about treatment methods, medications, and management strategies. Stories from teens who have epilepsy show readers they can participate in normal activities. They also offer advice on whether and how to tell friends, dates, teachers, or an employer about the condition. The book concludes with an extensive resource listing of publications, Web sites, and organizations, as well as an appendix that covers the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and how it applies to people who have epilepsy.

I love that this book tells stories from the teens point of view about driving, how school can be different and how they feel. I read it and then gave it to my daughter to read, then she can come to me with questions.

This was an easy read for myself (I read it first) and my fifteen year old daughter. Lots of examples of others with epilepsy discussed in the book, and how they deal with epilepsy.

love it
