Seizure Tracker - Back To School Preparedness

Don’t Go Back to School without a Seizure Tracker Dynamic Seizure Action Plan!

A Dynamic Seizure Action Plan (DSAP) along with the Seizure Tracker’s extensive recording and reporting features allows you to send your children back to school with confidence in their care.


Where to start?

Talk to your child’s doctor...

Communicate with your doctor about an appropriate action plan for your child, including treatment, taking into consideration different environments. Talk about the different types of seizures that occur and how responses may vary based on seizure type and environment, such as: at home, in school, at work, etc.

Here are some things you should make sure are included:

  • How to make the person safe during a seizure
  • Rescue medication directions (with doctors input)
  • When to call for help (EMS or doctor)
  • What is typical and what to do if things are different
  • Medical history
  • Educational/Cognitive impact before, during and after a seizure (for school exclusively)

Knowing how to handle seizures in school is imperative for children to stay safe while getting a quality education. School staff, nurses, and even close friends, could be able to help by administering a rescue medication, calling for help, or reducing the risk of injury. A well structured seizure action plan will help them know what, if anything, they need to do during a seizure. It also gives your child and their support team a clear plan to share with others, and empowers people outside the regular care team to take appropriate action if a seizure occurs.
