Epilepsy in Infants and Young Children: A Guide for Parents

Caring for a baby, infant or young child who is experiencing seizures can be distressing. This guide gives parents and carers essential information about living with and managing epilepsy in young children.

You can download a copy of 'Epilepsy in infants and young children: A guide for parents' below.

It has been written by experts from Young Epilepsy and Great Ormond Street Hospital, as well as parents, many of whom have shared information that they wish they had known when their child was first diagnosed.

We also have downloadable copies of the forms mentioned in our parent guides.
