Five myths and truths about epilepsy
Fact: People with epilepsy have the same ranges of intelligence as the general population. Nonetheless, it may affect learning success if seizures are frequent, if the person is not taking medication, or if the person does not have the support they need.
Fact: No. That’s impossible. By putting something into their mouth, you are leaving them susceptible to injury (for example broken jaw or teeth). So you should never introduce objects into a person’s mouth during a seizure.
