Support for Everyone
Support Services Offerings:
Info Sessions & Support Groups
Support Groups are conducted by Epilepsy Alliance Louisiana for adults with epilepsy, as well as for parents of children with epilepsy. These sessions provide a setting for people concerned with epilepsy to learn and discuss day-to-day issues.
Informational Sessions are provided throughout the year about topics related to epilepsy care and daily living.

Support for Parents of Kids with Epilepsy and Seizures (SPOKES) is a support group specifically designed for parents of children with epilepsy to find common ground on successes and challenges they face in their everyday lives.
Advocacy services are aimed at helping individuals with epilepsy secure needed services and rights guaranteed by law. Issues such as employment discrimination, problems with governmental service delivery, and Social Security disability denial are addressed through information and referral.
Funded by Epilepsy Louisiana, one week of Epilepsy summer camp is held annually, typically in July, at MedCamp of Louisiana. A week-long, free-of-charge camp, designed specifically for children with epilepsy – including appropriate health professionals, specially trained staff, and tailored activities – offers a great opportunity for a safe, fun camp experience.
