Welcome to our research website…
The CASTLE study is focused on rolandic epilepsy, which is the most common type of childhood epilepsy and affects about one-sixth of all children with epilepsy in the UK.
Throughout the CASTLE study, we’ll be working with children, parents, doctors and nurses to choose the best ways to measure health and quality of life for children with epilepsy. The research will also include talking to parents and children about their experiences in relation to sleep, taking medication, learning and how taking part in the study has impacted on them.
In this part of the study, children and parents are asked to tell us about their experiences of living with rolandic epilepsy. We’re interested to learn about their experiences of taking the study medication, how they/their child is sleeping, and the impact of epilepsy on them/their child’s learning.
Without the generosity of people and funding bodies our research would not be possible. We acknowledge and we are very grateful to our funders and partners.
