Module 4: In the Classroom

Student Accommodations: Effects of epilepsy

Depending on what kind of seizures someone has and the medication they use to control them, they can face other challenges that can impact the classroom, such as:

  • Exhaustion, from nocturnal seizures
  • Memory problems
  • Stress as a seizure trigger

Accommodations to support these challenges should be discussed with the student and could include items, such as:

  • A separate room or more time for an exam
  • Cueing sheets
  • Flexibility with early morning attendance/participation
