Living with Epilepsy and Disability

Designed for Families and carers

Description

Epilepsy is far more common for people living with disabilities than it is for the general population. This half-hour course is designed for support workers and families to provide an understanding of living with epilepsy and disability. The course covers some of the challenges faced, recognising types of seizures and quality of life.

You will be required to complete a quiz at the end before receiving a certificate.

Please note this course does not cover seizure first aid.  For seizure first aid see Epilepsy Essentials.

Your course access will expire 3 months after purchase.
