Education and epilepsy

When your child is diagnosed with epilepsy, education is likely to be one of your first concerns. Many children, especially once their epilepsy is controlled by medicine, are unlikely to need any extra support. But some children will continue to have seizures and need medical or other support. Making sure the school knows about your child’s epilepsy will give them the best chance of getting the learning, social and health support they need.

This information covers the ways in which the school should be supporting your child, and the laws behind that.
