Epilepsy / Seizure Disorder
The student with epilepsy may have little problem in the classroom. In most cases, seizures will be controlled by medication. Some students with epilepsy will have learned to manage seizure activity through adequate rest, proper diet, and regular medication. Most will be able to participate in sports and lead active, normal lives. There are some whose seizure activity simply cannot be controlled. For more information on first aid for a person who has seizures, download our handout Responding to Seizures.
