Brain Injury/Stroke

The impact of a brain injury is often life-changing for survivors, their families, and caregivers.

EPI offers counseling, training, and tailored programs for adults with brain injuries. EPI was one of the first agencies in New York to provide specialized Traumatic Brain Injury. We serve people with all types of acquired brain injuries, including stroke.

Epilepsy Services

Epilepsy strikes most often among the very young and the very old, although anyone can develop epilepsy at any age. In the U.S., it affects 2.2 million people including 300,000 children under the age of 15. While medications and other treatments help, about half of those affected, will have seizures that severely limit school achievements, employment prospects and participation in life.

If you or a loved one has epilepsy, EPI can help. We have more than 40 years of experience supporting people with epilepsy and their families with epilepsy-specific programs.
