Brain Circuits - What Do They Do?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Your brain's neurons, connections, and lobes don't work in isolation. Functions and Information are processed by many different areas of the brain that are connected by circuits. When these circuits are interrupted, whether by seizures or by epilepsy surgery, issues with attention and social cognition can occur.

Understanding how your child's brain circuits have been interrupted will help you advocate for their educational success, as well as help you understand their behaviors and challenges.
