This book describes the effects that different kinds of epilepsy in children can have on the child’s behavior and cognitive development. It is mainly based on the authors’ extensive studies over many years. These are described in the book, together with the available diagnostic methods and therapies. It is written so that the various professionals dealing with such children (paediatricians, neurologists, psychologists) can see their contribution and have a general view of the complex interrelation between medical psychological and educational problems in these children.
