Health Tip: Keep Your Epileptic Child Safer

(HealthDay News) -- Parents of a child with epilepsy may be preoccupied with keeping the child safe during the school day.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these suggestions:

  • Develop an action plan so that teachers and school officials know what to do in the event of a seizure or similar emergency.

  • Contact the Epilepsy Foundation, which offers free training programs for school staff.

  • Talk with your child's school about offering education programs to help other students understand the disease.

  • Join a support group, which can help parents better understand issues such as driving, dating, medicines and handling stress.
