HOBSCOTCH program

People with seizures have a lot of difficulties with day-to-day memory, which may affect their job and their social lives. HOBSCOTCH (HOme Based Self-management and COgnitive Training CHanges lives) is a behavioral program designed to address memory and attention problems for people with epilepsy.

HOBSCOTCH uses certain psychological strategies (self-management and problem-solving therapy) to improve memory function in people with seizures. The program is designed to help adults with seizures to find ways to manage and cope with memory problems in order to lead a happier, more productive life. The program is simple, cost-effective, and requires only a few visits to your doctor’s office.
