Illinois Epilepsy Support and Resources

Would you like to play test our new game? The Windows version is ready to try out.  Go here, download “Finalwindowsbuild2.zip”, then unzip on your PC.  Inside the main folder click on the file (not the folder) “Epilepsy Self Care with Streator Unlimited.”  If this is outside of your technical comfort zone, don’t worry–once it’s finished there will be very user-friendly versions available for different devices.  This game was created by the Game Development Special Interest Group, which is a subset of Illinois State University’s student chapter of the Association for Information Technology Professionals and Association for Computing Machinery, to help reinforce good self-care skills for people with epilepsy.

Transportation can be a challenge. Once place to start is the Illinois Public Transit Service System.
