Current Epilepsy Trainings for Schools

Valley Children's Epilepsy Support Program offers several trainings for school personnel who wish to learn more about epilepsy and how to support students who have epilepsy. 

  • LVN/RN Detailed Seizure Training - A two-hour detailed seizure training for Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN) and Registered Nurses (RN).

  • School Personnel and Teachers - A one-hour discussion on the importance of academic and social accommodations as well as teaching suggestions and tips for children who have epilepsy to help create an optimal learning environment. Trainings for all academic ages are available. First aid steps and practice can be included if requested.

  • In-Classroom Training - A 30-minute interactional session meant to reduce the stigma of epilepsy and promote acceptance on school campuses. When staff is knowledgeable about epilepsy and can respond appropriately to a student having a seizure, the uncertainty and fear common among other students in the classroom can be reduced. This quick interaction will address simple epilepsy definitions as well as BUST common myths in order to reduce stigma and promote support through education. A book reading can be provided for younger audiences.
