Adolescence is a time of significant change for any child. For a child with epilepsy, this can include changes in seizure patterns, treatment strategies, social and emotional effects, and responsibilities for self-management. Dr. Constantinou, a pediatric epileptologist with the Henry Ford Comprehensive Epilepsy Program, discusses specific epilepsy syndromes that begin, resolve, or change in adolescence; the impact of epilepsy and its treatment on the developing brains of teens; how adolescence can influence treatment decisions and strategies; and how teens with epilepsy can manage their condition and its effects on daily life.
