The Physical Rehabilitation team will evaluate admitted siezure patients at some point during most hospital stays.  They will discuss possible therapies including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language therapy, and recreational therapy.  They can give you a realistic picture of what the loss of function will mean for your and your family.  Following surgery, these specialists would help you to arrange outpatient therapies that would continue at home.  In some instances, epilepsy patients may need to participate in an off-site inpatient rehabilitation program.  Inpatient rehabilitation may be needed to help patients gain strength and function in his/her motor, speech and/or functional abilities.  A dedicated team of physical therapists, recreational therapists, occupational therapists and physical therapists, nurses, social work and others will assist you or your child to meet any goals.  You will be part of a team meeting to plan for your recovery or your child's recovery.
