Today is Epilepsy Awareness Day!

We are so proud to clinically support children with epilepsy.

Did you know that epilepsy is associated with speech and language difficulties? Often this relationship is overlooked.

Of the cognitive difficulties seen in epilepsy, language disorders are especially critical to identify and support as they can impact upon academic skills and long-term social, professional and psychological challenges.

Our blog series has been consciously created to answer the questions that we commonly receive from parents, teachers, and doctors. We also hope to bring awareness to the range and extent of communication challenges that children and teenagers may face in their home, school, and social environments. We hope that our blog series may also highlight the role and importance of paediatric speech pathology.
