Thank you for your response. I have been in close contact with the school and they are wonderful. We are all a little frustrated because he doesn't finish work and doesn't pay attention to the teacher. What I am wondering is if this is normal that kids with epilepsy seem to have trouble in school? What have you noticed?
PS Nice pictures of your daughters. They are beautiful girls.
Thank You so much for the information. I will talk to the school next week. I want to nip this in the bud, so to speak, now before he gets into harder grades.
It is nice to get advice from someone who knows what I am going through. There are times when I feel like I am failing as a mother, though I know that I am doing everything I can for him. So thank you again.
How old is Grace? and how long has she been diagnosed with epilepsy?
Thank you for asking. He is doing a little better. We are doing a Phyc test next month to see how to help him do better in school. One thing that I am very frustrated with is the fact that there are not enough Pediatric neurologists to go around. They are so busy that it takes weeks for them to answer questions.
How is your daughter?
I was an elementary teacher for many years and experienced many students on different meds. in the classroom. I would research the side effects of the medicine and talk with his doctor about this. In my humble opinion it sounds like he is zoned out on the medicine. I would also closely follow up with his classroom teacher and ask her opinion on this as well. His dosage might be the cause.
