Family Support Network
The Center helps willing consumers to link with each other and provide mutual support on their own time, outside of the Epilepsy Center’s scheduled activities. It is particularly helpful in the case of a family with a newly diagnosed child with epilepsy. Here’s the link to our Parents Facebook page. This is a closed group and you will have to answer 2 qualifying questions for approval.
Family Camp is a weekend of fun filled camping experience. Families impacted by epilepsy enjoy camping activities, epilepsy education and social events designed to increase understanding of epilepsy, improve social skills and develop self esteem in a warm and accepting environment. Weekend accommodations are limited so registration is first come, first served. We do have a Saturday Only option which is ideal if you want to take advantage of all the activities but just not spend the night. Go to our Events page for registration information.
Kids on the Block (KOB)
KOB is an epilepsy educational puppet show available for 3rd and 4th grade students. During the show, children learn what epilepsy is, what to do when someone has epilepsy and how to be a friend when the seizure is over. The KOB method of puppetry creates an atmosphere where children feel comfortable to interact with the puppets and to ask questions about the topic. The presentation is free and you can also view it on our YouTube Channel.
LWE is a series of seminars designed to provide clients in the community with relevant information that will enhance their lives. The presenters are specialists in their field who create an atmosphere conducive to communication with the audience. LWE takes place in the Epilepsy Center’s Training Center. If you have a topic you’d like to learn more about, please use the ‘Contact Us’ link to submit your idea.
The Resource Center (RC)
The Resource Center is located in the library at our corporate offices on Holland Road. The RC includes a library of books, magazines, videos, and other media related to epilepsy. The public is welcome, but we ask that you call ahead to be sure library space is available at a convenient time for you.
