Benign Rolandic (frontal) Epilepsy in children
I am a Pediatric Neuropsychologist doing a study of the behavioral and emotional changes that can accompany Benign Rolandic Epilepsy (BRE). The study is being conducted in the Dept. of Pediatrics at the University of Minnesota Medical Center in Minneapolis. Participating in the study involves some observations of your child that you would make at home and 1 trip to our clinic for an EEG evaluation. Compensation for your time and effort in completing the study would be $100. If you or someone you know has a child between 5 and 12 years old with BRE, lives in the Twin Cities Area, and might be interested in learning more about this study please PM me for a phone number and email address at which I can be reached.

Just approved the post (made it visible). Bumping for visibility.
New to CWE? I suggest reading the proactive prescription and epilepsy 101 threads. Also check out this chart of alternative epilepsy treatments and this page on EEG Neurofeedback. More great stuff can be found in the list of the best forum threads.
Would you like to help support this forum?
I wish there was something like this taking place in Oklahoma. My son who is 11 was diagnosed with BRE and prior to him being diagnosed he had been too two counselors since 1st grade because of his behavioral issues. In understanding now this may be the reason why we have such a tough time with him. Still trying to find some way to help him. Doing nothing is just not an option for me. His behavior just gets worse it seems like every year. He's not the happy kid he used to be and well, it just makes me very sad.
