Epilepsy training in all nurserys/school/colleges.

Epilepsy training in all nurserys/school/colleges.

I think it is very important that all nurserys, schools, and colleges are given Epilepsy training. To make staff and pupils more aware about Epilepsy.

Why is this important?

It is very important to raise more awareness about Epilepsy and how to help someone if they are having a seizure.
There are over 40 types of seizure and a child/adult could start having seizures at anytime. I think it is so important for teachers to be tought how to recognise the different types of seizures and also knowing what to do in an emergancy situation. I think it should be compulsory training that all education setting should have to do.


Reasons for signing

  • Should be standard part of first aid training. Makes sense.
  • Because its a bloody good idea!
  • I myself am on medications for Epilepsy. When I was an epileptic teenager in the 1980s, the school first aid nurse did not have a clue how to handle an epileptic siezure and this was prime entertainment in the eyes of the bully club!
