Our support groups help families:
Each meeting begins with a specific topic presented by a professional with experience in caring for children with seizures. Following the speaker's presentation, there is time for open discussion so families can share their stories. Child care is provided for siblings and children under the age of six. There is no cost to participate. Dinner is provided at no charge.
If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please contact:

We offer a support group for Children (ages 5-12) and Adolescents (ages 13-21). Each group is led by a Certified Child Life Specialist. The groups are held at the same time as the parent group. These child and adolescent support groups will help patients cope more effectively with their diagnosis and encourage socialization with peers who have a similar diagnosis. If you are interested and would like more information, please contact one of our child life specialists:
