Abstract

We present behavioral treatment guidelines, based on empirically established behavioral interventions, for pediatric paroxysmal disorders. The guidelines include affirming the disability and normalizing the role of the environment; teaching the child anticonvulsant coping behaviors; giving caregivers guidelines to encourage independent functioning; and involving teachers and other supervising adults in treatment. The guidelines were developed for economic feasibility, time efficiency, and easy execution in any primary-care clinic. A patient report demonstrates significant reduction in drug-refractory seizures in an 11-year-old girl by implementing the guidelines. Discussion is provided on effective implementation of the behavioral guidelines in the primary-care clinic.
