wondering if anyone can recommend a good book to help explain this madness to kids. My daughter is 5 and I need help explaining it better. I have just been winging it, so far.
preferably a book about epilepsy for children. if not, maybe a book about children with medical needs.
anyone have any good suggestions?
Here are some great books I have used.
We love "Let's learn with Teddy about epilepsy" - best book we have found and we have read quite a few. I have read it to my children and shared it with my son's entire preschool class. You can find it at: http://www.amazon.com/Lets-Learn-Teddy-about-Epilepsy/dp/0978772725...
Thank you so much. I will check these out. I think we are finally in a place where we can start focusing on teaching her and others about the epilepsy in a more structured approach.
If you have a local epilepsy affiliate, they usually have resources available as well. I have a coloring book that I got from our local epilepsy foundation that explains things in very simple terms.
