Homeschooling with Epilepsy

The seizures can be fierce, and too often twenty times a day. There are no soft landing spots at a school, compared to a home. Medication can’t be kept with a student in a school, but only in an office. Consider homeschooling!

I got the idea for this page when I went to hear David Axelrod speak at the Computer History Museum recently. His wife, Susan is the chair and founding member of CURE, or Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy. Under Axelrod’s leadership, CURE has successfully redefined the goals of epilepsy research as “no seizures, no side effects.”

Advice about Homeschooling an Epileptic Child

Making the Choice to Homeschool Your Child
It’s one of your worst nightmares as a parent who wants their child to be successful – Your child with Epilepsy says they can no longer go to school because they have too many seizures while they are there. This situation may seem all too convenient. It may seem like another way to get out of doing homework or get out of having to be up at 6:00am each morning. But in reality, one must think of the many, many legitimate reasons in which a child with Epilepsy should be homeschooled.

Driving

Extra Special Teen Talk: Driving and Epilepsy
I yearn to drive and “get on with life”. Driving is not how I am going to do it. I will wait for my state’s required period of time to pass. My doctor’s letter of assurance. Most of all I will wait until I am sure that I am ready to drive again. I take personal responsibility of my driving privileges. I hope you will too.
