School Nurse and School Personnel Training

What is Seizure Training for School Personnel?

Developed as a part of the School Nurse Training Program, the Epilepsy Foundation 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, school bus drivers, aides and other staff members or volunteers in grads K-12 can all benefit.

How Do I Bring the Program to My School?

The Epilepsy Foundation provides a kit with a CD-ROM which includes a facilitator’s guide, Power Point slides, information on continuing education units, and a DVD called Seizures in Schools: Understanding and Assisting Students With Epilepsy. You can also take the training online, e-mail our program manager, or call 1-800-332-1000 for more information.
