Event Description
The Teen Transition Workshop is being offered, in conjunction with the Back to School Conference, for high school students with epilepsy. Participating teens attend the first educational session at the Back to School Conference (on Epilepsy Self-Management) with their parents, and then break off into a separate room for the remainder of the day. During this time, they will participate in a variety activities (including icebreakers, facilitated discussion, goal setting, problem-solving, and skill-building activities) focused on getting them to engage in the process of thinking and preparing for adulthood. SPACE IS LIMITED, so register soon!
