The Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana (EFK) is offering a free lesson on epilepsy for teachers to use in the classroom. The training, appropriate for grades 4-12, provides students with a basic knowledge of the brain, the different seizure types, first aid responses for each seizure type and a discussion to help reduce stigma and misperceptions about seizures and epilepsy. A short video featuring teenagers with epilepsy and examples of what seizures look like is included.
The 45- to 60-minute program is conducted by EFK staff. Email David Pettit for more information.
