Epilepsy is more common in people with a learning disability and usually the more severe the learning disability the more likely that the person will also have epilepsy.
Key elements & aims of our services and treatment programmes
Our services are highly experienced in supporting those individuals with a learning disability who also have epilepsy and are experienced in working with all levels of the condition including severe and debilitating seizures.
Our staff are specially trained in caring for those with a learning disability and epilepsy and work with each individual to help them manage the condition in our community based services with the aim of ensuring each person lives as ordinary and fulfilled life as possible.
