The most important way to help your child and his or her physicians is to be an active member of your child’s health team. This means being prepared for visits, keeping records, learning to ask questions and advocating for your child. Networking with other parents of children with epilepsy may become a source of information, strength, and inspiration as you learn to live with your child’s epilepsy. And most of all, do not forget to take care of yourself – without you, your child’s number one advocate is gone.
It is highly recommended that an electroencephalogram (EEG) is performed before your first visit.
If you would like to arrange an EEG with Children’s Medical Center, please contact the Epilepsy Center today at 214-456-2768. Our accredited neurophysiology lab performs more than 3,000 EEGs each year.
