Mimoza Maloku Kuqi, Eglantina Dervishi



The purpose of the present article is to explore and analyze the cognitive dysfunctions on school-age children suffering from epilepsy. A second aim  is to elicit inferences on the factors, nature and comorbidity of idiopathic epilepsy typologies with cognitive deficits in these subjects.The method used in the present study is of  a retrospective and comparative type. The results of the metanalytical process will be determined through examination of specific literature and dynamic analysis of the nature and association of epilepsy with cognitive dysfunctions in this  group-age. At the end of this article, some considerations will be articulated on the didactic, re-education and forms of effective psycho-education in order to modify not only the curricular but also the extracurricular dynamics of these subjects.

Keywords: epilepsy types, cognitive dysfunctions, school- age childre, psychoeducation.
