Abstract

There are few published guidelines on the neuropsychological assessment of children with epilepsy. We propose a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation which focuses on the epileptic child and assessment of intellectual functions, psychological makeup and psychosocial milieu. Structured guidelines for parental interview and specific parent/teacher questionnaires are recommended. An outline for a thorough neuropsychological assessment examining six cognitive domains is described. Key areas of psychological functioning and appropriate assessment techniques are reviewed.
