1 in 100: Bringing Epilepsy Out of the Shadows

Epilepsy is the second most common neurological disorder, but many people don’t know how to react to seizures or administer first aid. Caregivers play a central role in the safety, acceptance and self-development of the child who has seizures in the classroom.  In this workshop, Jodi Maruncic and Leah Sultan-Khan, from Epilepsy Toronto explain about cultural myths and misconceptions, seizure types and their effects on the brain, how seizures affect children at different stages of development, and how to respond efficiently and effectively.
