Seizures in School

Valley Children’s understands that a child’s medical condition does not only affect their life at home, but also at school. Valley Children’s offers a comprehensive Epilepsy Training to help navigate epilepsy in the school system and provide support to staff. Trainings focus on the medical, behavioral, cognitive, psychosocial and academic effects of epilepsy.

Our program also offers virtual educational opportunities for school nurses and anyone working on a school campus. CE’s are provided for attendance.

Annual Epilepsy Carnival

Once a year, Valley Children’s hosts a free carnival aimed to bring together friends and families of those living with epilepsy. This event is family-friendly and an opportunity to educate the community on epilepsy – from seizure tips to answering common questions.


Art for Epilepsy

Art for Epilepsy is a virtual event hosted once every three months. This free activity is an opportunity for families to log online and learn different artistic techniques. With each event, we feature a different painting using art supplies you might already have. Email us at epilepsysupport@valleychildrens.org for more information.
