One out of every 100 children has epilepsy. Chances are, there are several students in your school right now who have seizures. Would your school’s staff and students know how to help those children if they were to have a seizure at school?
The EAWCP can help your school to become “Seizure Smart.” Participants in a free Project School Alert presentation will learn how to recognize different types of seizures, how to respond to someone having a seizure, how to provide any necessary first aid, the importance of giving emotional support to individuals affected by epilepsy, and how to help others understand. Contact the EAWCP office in your region for more information about Project School Alert or to schedule a presentation for your school.
