School's Awareness Program

Talks to Schools

Teaching children and young people about epilepsy can help normalise the condition. This can help reduce feelings of stigma and isolation. Epilepsy Scotland regularly delivers workshops on epilepsy to schools.

The talks are fun and interactive and aim to give children:

  • an awareness of epilepsy
  • the skills to deal with seizures
  • an understanding of how epilepsy can impact on a child's lifestyle
  • an open and supportive attitude towards anyone with the condition


The workshops are age-relevant, from P1 to S2. Children enjoy these workshops and they involve story-telling, games and quizzes.
