Epilepsy – the dos and don’ts. A Rough Guide for non-Epileptics on how to handle Epilepsy!

As the father of a son with autism I take a particular interested in the whole area of epilepsy. As many of you know people on the autism spectrum are more likely to develop epilepsy. Indeed one of the students at my son’s autism ResourceBase has just started to have epileptic seizures. It should just be noted that a seizure is a sudden surge of electrical activity in the brain. It may impact how a person acts or looks for a short period.

And it is not just the autism community which she be aware of what to do in the event of an epileptic seizure.

In fact we all need to know so I have taken the opportunity to share this brilliant set of tips of what to do (and what not to do) if you are around somebody who has had or is having an epileptic seizure.

Please do share so we can help promote awareness of epilepsy.

Many thanks in advance.
