Young Epilepsy has just launched a free online guide for schools on supporting young people with epilepsy:www.youngepilepsy.org.uk/guideforschools The guide has been designed to ensure young people with epilepsy are fully supported in their educational setting. Supporting pupils with medical conditions is a statutory duty under section 100 of the Children and Families Act 2014. Supporting pupils with medical conditions also supports schools’ safeguarding and equality duties. The guide includes information on seizure first aid, epilepsy’s impact on learning and behaviour and the key elements of support that should be in place at school, and template documents, including a policy on supporting pupils with medical conditions, an Individual Healthcare Plan (IHP) and a seizure record form. The guide also features Young Epilepsy’s ABLE tool (Assessment of Behaviour and Learning in Epilepsy). This is a simple questionnaire for staff and parents to use to identify potential areas of concern.
