Event Description
Epilepsy can be challenging on its own, but when coupled with a developmental or intellectual disability, a host of additional challenges can occur. Dr. Iqbal Allarakhia, a pediatric epileptologist with St. John Providence Health System, will review some of the common developmental disabilities associated with epilepsy and some of the epilepsy syndromes associated with intellectual disability. He will also discuss the various members of the healthcare team and their roles in caring for patients with epilepsy and developmental disability, along with special treatment considerations, educational considerations, and how to prepare for adulthood.
