What is Seizure Training for School Personnel?

The Epilepsy Foundation of America developed Seizure Training for School Personnel in response to the need for a consistent educational tool to help promote a positive social and educational environment for students living with seizures and epilepsy.

Classroom teachers, special education teachers, librarians, teacher assistants, nutrition services, aides and other staff members or volunteers in grades K-12 can all benefit and can receive continuing education units.

The program is one hour long, and includes a pre and post test to measure learning, a slide presentation, video footage of seizure activity, and a Q & A session.

We will come to your facility and present the training for your staff.   It is our goal to accommodate your schedule as much as possible.  Please connect with Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast Tennessee to schedule a training.
