Young Epilepsy’s Guide for Schools

Young Epilepsy has recently launched a free online guide for schools on supporting young people with epilepsy: www.youngepilepsy.org.uk/guideforschools

The guide includes information on seizure first aid, epilepsy’s impact on learning and behaviour and the key elements of support that should be in place at school, and  template documents, including a policy on supporting pupils with medical conditions, an Individual Healthcare Plan (IHP) and a seizure record form.

The guide also features Young Epilepsy’s ABLE tool (Assessment of Behaviour and Learning in Epilepsy). This is a simple questionnaire for staff and parents to use to identify potential areas of concern.

For further information on the guide, please email Lisa Thurston, lthurston2@youngepilepsy.org.uk

"Weeks run from Monday to Sunday. Please note that weeks without communications to schools are ignored and the links will go to the last week where a communication was made in this category."
