Thanks for visiting my author website and reading my book, Sometimes I Get the Wiggles. I was inspired to write it after watching my son, Kannon, struggle when he first went off to school, until a wise teacher helped his classmates see the boy behind the epileptic seizures. She turned them into her helpers and Kannon’s dearest friends.
I came to see those youngsters—the boys and girls who helped Kannon fit into school and who helped their teacher by keeping an eye on my son on the playground or when she was out of the room—as Seizure Heroes. I will ever be grateful to them, as will Kannon.
I hope you enjoy Sometimes I Get the Wiggle, and after reading it maybe you, too, will want to become a Seizure Hero! You may or may not know other students who have epilepsy, but I bet there is someone in your classroom or school who could use a hero to stand by them.
We have a lot of fun things planned for this site, so come back and visit often.
