Abstract
A guide for parents, physicians, and dietitians wanting to implement the ketogenic diet to treat difficult-to-control epileptic seizures in children. This Fifth Edition has been extensively updated to reflect current advances in understanding how the diet works, how it should be used, and the future role of the diet as a treatment. Six new chapters address how to integrate the diet into all cultures, religions, and taste preferences; new information on modified and less restrictive versions of the diet, and the use of diets for adults with epilepsy are included. The book also covers exciting new research that shows how the diet may work for people with other neurological illnesses. This best-seller also includes sample meal plans, a food database, how to calculate foods, and much more.

To make Robert and the other students understand what happened, the Coach gives the children a lesson in music, describing it as an Orchestra in Our Brain. This book's simple and non-graphic way to explain epilepsy to children is one that will allow kids to understand seizures, and to learn about people who are different than themselves.
