Epilepsy Training for Schools

Epilepsy Training for Schools

Our training courses can be conducted at your school at a time convenient to staff. We teach staff how to identify the signs of many types of seizures and how best to support a person with epilepsy in their care.

Our training is now TQI accredited for 2 hours.
About 1 in 200 children live with epilepsy.

A child’s learning, behaviour and thinking can be negatively impacted by seizure activity, seizure recovery, medication side-effects and potential ongoing abnormal electrical activity in the brain.

Epilepsy ACT offer 2 face to face training courses.

  1.   Understanding and Managing Epilepsy (approx 1 hour.   $744 for up to 15 participants -GST included)
  2.   Administration of Emergency Medication  (approx 1 hour.   $744 for up to 10 participants -GST included)

The Understanding and Managing Epilepsy course is suited to schools who want to know more about supporting students with epilepsy and is a prerequisite course to the Administration of Emergency Medication course.   Schools with students that require administration of emergency medication such as midazolam should enrol in both courses.
