Education Advocacy

Advocacy Through Education: School Intervention Program

Parents know that education is vital to their child’s development, and nothing – including epilepsy – should get in the way of that. We can help parents and caregivers advocate with school officials to create an educational plan to best fit the needs of a child with epilepsy.

The foundation offers educational support to families of school-age children, as well as children themselves, and school staff members who provide services to a student with epilepsy.

All advocates are well-informed on disability law to help children receive the education they deserve, and can offer assistance with:

  • IEP (Individualized education plans)
  • 504 plan meetings
  • Teacher In-service Days
