Content of the DISABKIDS Epilepsy Module (EM)

The epilepsy module has been developed as a supplement to the chronic generic module and comprises of two scales - Impact which includes anxiety about having seizures and the potential public stigma (5 items) and Social which self-esteem and comparison to others (5 items), in both child and parent versions for the 8-16 year olds and a proxy/parent version for the 4-7 year olds. The scale is measured between 0-100, higher values indicate better adjustment to the epilepsy. Internal consistency values are α =.90 for the Impact scale, and .83 for the Social scale.
