Our Services

The Epilepsy Association provides comprehensive services to adults, children and families affected by epilepsy in Northeast Ohio. The agency is the sole provider of these services in an eleven-county region.

The Epilepsy Association provides services in three main areas: information and referral, direct social services, and community-based epilepsy education. Please call the Association for additional information.


Family & Kids Program:

The Epilepsy Association has a new service for families.  The Kids and Family Program helps parents with community resources connections, and overcoming obstacles in managing a child’s epilepsy.  The service can take place in the comfort of your own home, and is provided by a case-manager.  Please call the agency to set up a consultation.
