Coordination of Care for Epilepsy Management

For short-term testing, diagnosis or long-term epilepsy management, our specialized team cares for children of all ages – infants, toddlers, children, adolescents, teens and young adults up to the age of 21. At the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at Arkansas Children’s, your primary care provider is an epileptologist – specially trained with advanced expertise just for children with epilepsy. This team of experts provides the continuity of care needed to improve the quality of life for your child. Our specialty nurses coordinate care every step of the way – and also provide a central contact so family members have someone to call with questions or to find out more information for day-to-day concerns.

By providing comprehensive epilepsy management, we address all areas beyond seizure management such as education and overall well-being. Our team addresses specific areas that affect overall care, including school performance and behavior concerns.

We provide comprehensive education for the entire family – knowing that when the family engages in the process – in the daily care plan - outcomes are better. Arkansas Children’s provides patient resources to help families through any healthcare need. We hope you will get involved – maybe as a family advisor - to help us continuously improve our patient and family experiences.

Resources for Daily Living

With epilepsy specific expertise, our team of epilepsy specialists has the experience of knowing what has worked for others so we can provide resources for improved daily living. We provide helpful resources such as the ketogenic diet for the treatment of seizures and offer the expertise of a pediatric dietician to help you understand how to get started.
