Neurology Matters Writing Program

The EFEPA is partnering with our friends at Neurology Matters to present a free, 6-week online program to help students develop critical writing skills and provide opportunities to confront personal challenges.

Epilepsy Warriors, ages 10 to 14, are invited to participate in a journey to discover their unique personalities and potential! The program is designed to encourage open dialogue about the social and emotional impacts of living with epilepsy. Through writing, we hope to empower them to share their thoughts and feelings with the ultimate takeaways being: independence, self-confidence and advocacy.
