Teen Group

Teen Group

As a child growing up with epilepsy, the social challenges one might face can be overwhelming. Teen Group enables children and teens to connect with others of the same age who understand what it means to live with epilepsy. The group focuses on ensuring that individuals know their self-worth, have a sense of belonging, and are a part of a social network that specifically addresses their unique needs.

Participating in Teen Group gives children and teens living with epilepsy the opportunity to bond at social events and participate in fun activities throughout the year. Children, teens, and their families get to interact with others in a setting where epilepsy is the commonality and not what makes them different.
