Your child and epilepsy – new online course

/, PSI/Your child and epilepsy – new online course

Epilepsy Action has launched a free online course for parents and carers of children with epilepsy. It’s been developed with parents, epilepsy nurses and psychologists.

The aim of the course is to give parents and carers the confidence, skills and knowledge to support their child with epilepsy. It’s packed with advice and information, including stories from other parents who understand the challenges.

There are eight parts, that cover:

  1. Understanding epilepsy
  2. Supporting your child with their epilepsy
  3. Keeping your child safe
  4. The impact of epilepsy on family life
  5. Your child’s wellbeing
  6. Learning and behaviour
  7. Growing up and independence
  8. Sources of help and support

The course is flexible and can be accessed at any time on a computer, tablet or smartphone with internet access. If you know any families that might benefit from knowing more about epilepsy, please let them know about this free course.

A leaflet promoting the course is available. If you would like any leaflets, please get in touch by emailing
