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.
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.
- Understanding and Managing Epilepsy
- Administration of Emergency Medication
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.
