dc.description.abstractEpilepsy is relatively common in people with learning disabilities, and can be complex and refractory to treatment, with negative effects on quality of life and service costs. This article describes a randomised controlled feasibility trial, called Wordless Intervention for Epilepsy in Learning Disabilities, under way at Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust. Recruitment of people with learning disabilities and epilepsy to the trial has been affected by logistical issues, such as difficulties in identifying potential patients and contacting carers. However, public and patient involvement has improved study design and management, and has helped maximise recruitment. Should the present study confirm feasibility, a full-scale randomised controlled trial will address the effects of the Books Beyond Words title Getting on With Epilepsy as an intervention for people with learning disabilities and epilepsy.en
