How do they do it? How do other parents manage the many challenges after their child has epilepsy surgery? Do you wish you had a “blueprint” of ideas and tools others have found effective?
Our guest speaker, Emily Marino (physical therapist and parent to Giulia, who had a hemispherectomy), will share her daughter’s journey and what they have found to work (and what didn’t) after hemispherectomy surgery for Rasmussen’s Encephalitis
Emily will discuss what they have done to address her needs in physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and communication, hearing, vision, assistive technology, executive function, and social skills. Her plan has empowered Giulia in the best way possible for a successful future.
Other parents will share their experiences with different epilepsy surgeries in future Parent Perspectives.
