More than twice as many Americans have seizure disorders, including epilepsy, as have Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and muscular dystrophy combined! Yet none of these well-known diseases carry the powerful stigma associated with epilepsy. From counselling services to education to residential and day programs, EPIC Long Island offers a wide variety of programs to assist those living with epilepsy, seizure disorders, or physical, intellectual, or emotional challenges.
The Epilepsy Foundation leads the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives. The Foundation connects people to treatment, support and resources; leads advocacy efforts; funds innovative research and the training of specialists; and educates the public about epilepsy and seizure first aid.
