THANK YOU to our Studio E Sponsors


During the conference, we will be offering a Children's Education Session for children with epilepsy, siblings of children with epilepsy and children who have a parent with epilepsy while the parents/adults are attending the general session.

We will hold Studio E: The Epilepsy Art Program, along with music therapy. Studio E builds a sense of community and connection, gives a voice to kids with epilepsy and helps kids connect with other kids their age who also experience epilepsy. Studio E is a program in partnership with the Epilepsy Foundation, Lundbeck and OWP Pharmaceuticals.

  • The program is not a childcare program, but an educational program for children.
  • The program is for ages 4-12.  Will accept children over the age of 12 if they are a good fit with the younger children in the program.
  • The adult to child ratio will be 1:5. A caregiver may accompany your child if they need one-on-one assistance.
  • Parents will be responsible for their children during lunch.
  • Limited to first 25 children registered.
