SeizureSmart Schools

SeizureSmart Schools online learning modules have been developed to support students, teachers, and schools and provide them with the knowledge and practical strategies to support children who live with epilepsy in an educational setting.

Every child’s experience of epilepsy is different and therefore supporting them at school will require an individualised approach. By becoming a SeizureSmart School you can demonstrate that your school has a supportive and inclusive learning environment.

This online learning module is an introduction to Understanding Epilepsy for Educators, enabling all teachers to develop the knowledge required to provide appropriate support to students who live with epilepsy.

The course can be completed online at your own pace and a personalised certificate is available for download upon completion. There are also additional classroom resources available for download.
