The repeated cluster seizures typical of PCDH19 epilepsy affect all members of the family with traumatic stress. Parents can help their children cope with the chronic traumatic events common in their household. Bringing parents into the classroom to share family traditions and special events creates a community of shared experiences and shared cultures. Parents feel pride as they witness their child representing their family traditions with their peers and teachers. Parents strengthen their emotional ties with the teachers and with the school through shared multicultural experiences.
