Epilepsy Smart Schools


Watch our Epilepsy Smart Schools video to see how Ava and her school have become an Epilepsy Smart School and how this has helped Ava, her parents and her teachers.


An Epilepsy Smart School embeds inclusive, safe and educationally sound practices for primary, secondary and special school students living with epilepsy. If you work in this space we encourage you to visit our Epilepsy Smart School website and talk to your colleagues about how your school can become an Epilepsy Smart School.

Clear communication between the child/young person with epilepsy, the family and the teachers is crucial in supporting successful transitions throughout the learning years.

The Epilepsy Foundation can work with your child’s school, train staff and raise awareness of epilepsy in general and more specifically understanding on how best to support your child. This is a vital step in ensuring that your child achieves his/her academic potential and develops valuable peer relationships that will build a strong foundation for a successful future.
