Summary:This second edition of a successful book provides updated clinical and research knowledge, including information on the licensing of new antiepileptic drugs. All chapters are updated to reflect present accepted practice and new chapters highlighting the importance of the genetic aspects of epilepsy, nonpharmacological treatments, and the impact of epilepsy on families and carers have been added. Ongoing developments in the general population, which will more likely than not become relevant to the intellectually disabled population, are discussed. The impact of epilepsy on the person themselves and their carers is acknowledged, and person-centred treatment programs with a multifaceted team approach are proposed. This book is aimed at physicians and residents in neurology and pediatrics, as well as other practitioners working with this population, such as neuropsychologists. Epilepsy and Intellectual Disabilities, Second Edition is recommended reading for all those caring for this important group of individuals.
