HOBSCOTCH: Home-Based Self-Management and Cognitive Training Changes Lives

A memory program for adults with epilepsy.

Program Description:

HOBSCOTCH is a FREE behavioral program designed to address memory and attention problems in adults with epilepsy. The program is designed to help adults with seizures find ways to manage and cope with memory problems in order to lead happier, more productive lives.

The program consists of 8 sessions delivered by a certified HOBSCOTCH Memory Coach. The sessions occur weekly and last 45-60 minutes. The first session is conducted either in-person, in a private office setting, or virtually while the participant is at home using a computer or tablet and a webcam. It is up to the Memory Coach and participant to decide if an in-person or virtual approach is more appropriate.

  • Session 1: In-person or Virtually
  • Session 2-7: Phone
  • Session 8: Phone, In-person, or Virtually

HOBSCOTCH has been shown to be effective for adults with epilepsy who are experiencing memory problems. The program is appropriate for those with controlled and uncontrolled seizures.
