More than half the numbers of children with epilepsy have interrelated language, learning and/or behavior complications. By adulthood, these problems can interfere with socialization and employment. The seizures may be controlled but the developmental distortions can continue to present problems for health and education systems and carers. In this comprehensive and fully referenced book, William Svoboda distils a lifetime of clinical experience with childhood epilepsy into three areas which address each of the main areas of difficulty. In each he looks at why the problems arise and assesses diagnostic and remediative approaches. The focus is on the whole care of the child rather than on diagnosis, classification and medication alone. Clinicians, mental health practitioners, educators and speecha€“language pathologists will find this book invaluable.Children with focal seizure disorders are more at risk for specific learning disabilities and related attentional activity-like ... seizures paradoxically seem to calm down in a noisy setting, suggesting 484 Attention deficit disorders Generalizedanbsp;...
