exclusion because of their epilepsy It’s these electrical impulses/messages that tell our body what to think, feel and do next. These neurons transmit their messages through electrical impulses. It’s a bit like they zap each other with a little zap of electricity to get the message through. Our brain tells our body what to
do and when to do it by sending messages from neuron to neuron. Our brain is made up of millions of brain cells called What to do if a person has a • Reassure the person • Don’t hold the person down or put anything in their mouth • If possible one or two students should stay
with the student until an adult arrives • Send for an adult immediately • Stay calm and remember most seizures are short Remember you must get adult help If you know a person with epilepsy Chris thinks the best way to help a person with epilepsy is to treat them Other great ways you can help people with epilepsy are: What might the world be
