chimat It cannot be easy for a child or young person to live with epilepsy – on top of that, many find it difficult and frustrating to talk to others about their condition and the impact it has on their life.

To help raise awareness and encourage greater understanding, children's epilepsy charity Young Epilepsy has developed a range of fun and interactive e-learning activities to encourage young people to learn more about the condition.
Suitable for a range of Key Stages, the activities can be used for whole class teaching, individual learning or interactive whiteboard use.

These include quizzes, slides, an animated guide on what to do if someone has a seizure, an interactive first aid poster, and a short animated film on living with epilepsy. Free teaching resources for schools are also available to download. You can access them at
