Theory of Mind and social competence in children and adolescents with genetic generalised epilepsy (GGE): Relationships to epilepsy severity and anti-epileptic drugs


Genetic generalised epilepsy (GGE) is a common childhood-onset epilepsy, which is associated with widespread social difficulties: reduced social competence, poor social skills and social communication deficits [1]. Social difficulties in GGE tend to persist, leading to social isolation and social stigma as adults [2]. In clinical practice, psychosocial problems are often undetected and untreated, partly because there is limited understanding of what underpins social difficulties in epilepsy, which is necessary for developing screening tools and empirically-validated treatments [3].
