People with seizures have a lot of difficulties with day-to-day memory, which may affect their job and 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 find ways to manage and cope with memory problems to lead a happier, more productive life. The program is simple, cost-effective, and requires only a few visits to your doctor’s office.
