The Epilepsy Foundation leads the fight to stop seizures, find a cure, and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy.
The Epilepsy Foundation of Delaware, originally known as the Delaware Epilepsy Association, was formed by members of the Easter Seals Society—physicians, parents, and others—directly concerned with the problems of epilepsy. After a number of years of informal meetings and activities, the association was incorporated in 1964.
In 1971 a collaborative agreement was reached with Easter Seals Society of Delaware. Corporate identity and individual functions were maintained, but administrative facilities and support services were shared.
An independent board of directors was established in December 1983. The Delaware Epilepsy Association became a full affiliate of the Epilepsy Foundation of America in December 1984. In January 1996 our name was changed to Epilepsy Foundation of Delaware to be consistent with the national organization.
The Epilepsy Foundation of Delaware offers a variety of programs for people with epilepsy, their families, and the public. We serve all who live, work and play in the state of Delaware.
