Seizures and You: Take Charge of the Facts is an epilepsy awareness program targeting teens and tweens ages 11-18. It usually takes place in a health, science, or physical education class, or in the gymnasium for the entire grade.
Students who complete this training will:
- Demonstrate a basic understanding of epilepsy as a medical condition
- Identify and learn about different types of seizures
- Know what to do and what not to do when someone is having a seizure
Through this program we also hope to dispel myths and reduce the perceived stigma associated with epilepsy within the teen population.
The program is one hour long, and includes a slide presentation, video footage of seizure activity, and a Q & A session.
We will come to your facility and present to your teens. It is our goal to accommodate your schedule as much as possible. Please connect with Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast Tennessee to schedule a training.
