IMPROVING CARE FOR CHILDREN WITH EPILEPSY
This online resource was created at the University of Alaska Anchorage Center for Human Development. Some information presented in this website is specific to Alaska, but the model that informed it was a parent guide published by the USC University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities at the Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. The most current version of California’s epilepsy parent guide is available in both English and Spanish on the Northern California Epilepsy Foundation website.
Project Access: Improving Care for Children with Epilepsy is a grant (#H98MCO8579) from the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration, awarded to the USC University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.
