Epilepsy is a pervasive disorder that consists not only of seizures, but of behavioral, academic, and social difficulties. Epilepsy has an impact on the entire family and may have a significant effect on the interrelationships between child and parent. Epilepsy also has a potentially deleterious effect on academic functioning that may be the result of central nervous system dysfunction, seizures, antiepileptic drugs, or child and family response to illness. Early assessment for psychosocial problems and appropriate interventions can be beneficial for the child and family. Particular attention should be paid to periods of transition such as the move from adolescence to adulthood.
