Being followed because of epilepsy

Fri, 12/28/2018 - 05:53
Hey everybody I have a question can schools make you have somebody follow you to classes because of your epilepsy? My seizures aren’t as bad as many people’s and my school is making somebody follow me around to my classes, and I feel like I’m not getting the education that I need because of this because if I don’t have a person I can’t go to class and learn!

Are you over the age of 18? I think they can offer that but cannot make it a requirement UNLESS it's considered a threat to your life or some one else's.(ex. you can work in out kitchen but because you have epilepsy, you can hurt yourself and others)
