Epilepsy in children: useful addresses

In addition to the medical problems specific to epileptic illness, there are also problems of adaptation to social life ... because the child may be too disabled to integrate into a "normal" life, or because the ideas received from the entourage still put it on the margin.

A doctor who worked a lot on this condition said: "There is no other affection than epilepsy where social prejudices are more serious than the disease itself".
So it is important to be well informed ...

Here are some useful addresses, the coordinates of associations specialized in epilepsy.
