Young people with epilepsy often tell us that they feel different and feel they are excluded from activities. Witnessing an epileptic seizure or worrying that one may occur can have a profound effect on staff and classmates if they are unprepared.
In addition, staff may be concerned about safety issues and other pupils could be fearful.
We offer support, information resources and training for school staff and students to raise epilepsy awareness and provide guidance on what to do in the event of a seizure.
Young Epilepsy is the operating name of The National Centre for Young People with Epilepsy (NCYPE) Registered Charity number 311877 (England and Wales)
