Synopsis

Epilepsy The Ultimate Teen Guide by Kathlyn Gay, Sean McGarrahan

Teens can lead normal, active lives despite having Epilepsy, and this book shows them how other teens are doing so. Through their stories they offer advice on whether and how to tell friends, dates, teachers, or an employer about the condition. Important teen issues, such as driving, dating, sports, and college are addressed. How the Americans with Disabilities Act(ADA) applies to people with epilepsy is also reviewed.
