Parent Groups

Are you looking to connect with parents who understand what it’s like to have a child with seizures? Then join us for one of our parent support groups. The groups generally meet once a month, and are organized by a local parent who has volunteered their time and serves as the liaison between the group and the EFWCP. These groups are a great opportunity for parents to discuss all of the issues they face when they have a child with epilepsy/seizure disorder, as well as make valuable contacts with other parents in their area. There is no commitment involved, just a casual meeting for when you need someone to talk to who will understand.

Below is a list of groups that are currently meeting in western/central Pennsylvania, as well as the email address for the lead parent.
