BECOME A CERTIFIED SEIZURE SMART SCHOOL
Why? Because every school has a duty of care to provide a safe learning environment, and to ensure they meet the needs of every student.
There are approximately 40 different types of seizures. Would you be able to recognise these?
Do you know the appropriate first aid to respond to a seizure?
Have you completed an individualized Seizure Management Plan for each child with epilepsy in your care?
For students living with epilepsy, the effects of seizures and medications may affect their learning experience adversely. Teachers can help manage and understand the needs of students in their care by developing their knowledge through epilepsy-specific training.
Seizure Smart Schools ensures that individualised Seizure Management Plans are developed for all primary and high school students that live with epilepsy
DON’T BE THE SCHOOL WITHOUT THE VITAL KNOWLEDGE AND BASIC FIRST AID. MEET YOUR DUTY OF CARE TO STUDENTS WITH TRAINED & CERTIFIED STAFF.
Note: Seizure Smart Schools does not extend to pre-schools or childcare centres at this time.
