Managing a condition like epilepsy can be complex and frustrating. Seizures can make it hard to work, go to school, drive, and take part in social activities. More than half of people with seizures experience memory problems. Sometimes epilepsy treatment makes these activities harder, too.
HOBSCOTCH (Home-Based Self-Management and Cognitive Training Changes Lives) is an evidence-based self-management program that helps improve the lives of people with epilepsy. While not a cure, HOBSCOTCH helps adults with seizure disorders manage and cope with memory challenges to lead happier, more productive lives.
