EpilepsyU is Awesome for Parents!

Epilepsy U is a very valuable resource for people living with Epilepsy all over the word. I have met many people online and gained knowledge and formed new friendships. I have also created a page for Parents of School Children to allow parents to ask questions regarding a 504 plan, or IEP for their child.
