About 1 in 100 people have epilepsy. Although people can develop epilepsy at any age, children have the highest diagnosis rate. Some parents of children with epilepsy choose not to disclose their child’s condition to their school due to stigma and fear that their child will be underestimated in class or face discrimination. It’s possible that there will be a time when you’ll have a child with epilepsy in your classroom and you won’t know it. Seizure Smart presentations are available for teachers and staff, as well as students.
