  • Know what to do and what not to do when someone is having a seizure
  • Be able to share accurate information about epilepsy with others

*In school settings, these trainings will also help equip attendees with information, strategies, and resources that will enable them to better manage a student with seizures by supporting positive treatment outcomes, maximizing educational and developmental opportunities, and ensuring a safe and supportive environment.
