Cognitive and Social Disorders

In Children with Epilepsy

This Peace of Mind lecture will provide an overview of cognitive and social disorders commonly seen in children with various epilepsy syndromes.  The talk will address factors affecting neuropsychological functioning in children with epilepsy, including seizure types and etiologies, effects of age and development, and possible cognitive effects of anti-epileptic drugs.  The talk will also discuss the role of neuropsychology with regard to evaluation, diagnosis, and recommended treatments, including school interventions, to address presenting cognitive and social concerns.
