What I Need In School (WINS) - guidelines for best practice

What I Need In School (WINS) - Developing guidelines for best practice for young people with epilepsy in schools in the UK


To garner the views and experiences of school age children (6-15 years) with epilepsy, their parents and teachers regarding the impact of epilepsy on school functioning and their current and desired educational supports for young people with epilepsy.

What this means

We know epilepsy can have a profound effect on a young person's learning and we want to ask them, their parents and their teachers to tell us what they feel they need support with and what type of support they would like. We hope this project will enable us to write guidelines for schools to support young people with epilepsy achieve their academic potential.


The project is now fully funded and has been granted ethical approval. The project commenced in November 2017.
