Support & Training

Providing resources, support, and education for the epilepsy community

People with epilepsy are better supported when the community understands their challenges. Our education programs provide training to schools, workplaces, senior care facilities, and other community groups at no cost so people better understand epilepsy and know how to recognize and respond to someone having a seizure. We also offer workshops on specific topics relevant to adults with epilepsy, parents of children with epilepsy, and school personnel.
