Young Epilepsy Section (YES)
A key overall objective of ILAE-YES is to improve access to up to date educational resources for young or new professionals in epilepsy, regardless of their location, language, or setting.
ILAE-YES Task Forces and working groups have curated the below library of easy-to-use resources that can be used by professionals in epilepsy to learn about cutting-edge advances in the field and important guidelines for clinical care. We also suggest following YES on social media to stay updated of new educational resources as they become available.
DISCLAIMER: All resources are based on current peer-reviewed sources and often peer-reviewed by ILAE mentors, but recommendations should only be used by appropriately qualified professionals and does not constitute medical advice to individual patients.
Infographics developed by the YES as quick references for some of the ILAE definitions and guidelines.

EpilepsyDiagnosis.org Spanish translation
Spanish is one of the top five languages spoken worldwide. EpilepsyDiagnosis.org was first launched in 2014 and now has >25,000 users per month. The Spanish translation of the website is the result of a joint effort between YES and the ILAE. The content has been designed to allow users to work through a structured framework and learn at their own pace. We are proud to deliver EpilepsyDiagnosis.org in the mother tongue to all the Spanish-speakers! View EpilepsyDiagnosis.org in Spanish
