I personally have come across a lot of misunderstanding about epilepsy, especially during my younger years as a student suffering from epilepsy myself. Children, as well as teachers, do not understand Epilepsy enough. They will treat the child unkindly or not take enough measures and the right measures to ease the child in class. Often children who suffer from epilepsy also have attention problems. That is why I have combined these two disorders as they are often present in a child who suffers from epilepsy.
In chapter one I give an introduction to epilepsy, in chapter two I discuss how the teacher can help the child, how epilepsy affects the child and those around her and whether it affects the child's school performance. Chapter three is about the risks of epilepsy at school. Certain restrictions are necessary for the child in school. Chapter 4 discusses 2 types of learning difficulties. Learning disabilities related to psychosocial conditions or epilepsy. Chapter 5 discusses ADHD, chapter 6 zooms in on one of the three keywords of an adaptive climate and that is classroom management. Different perspectives are presented.
Chapter 7 discusses the other two keywords of an adaptive climate, namely interaction and instruction. If there is no proper interaction, the instruction will also not be in order. IF there is no proper instruction, the interaction will not be good either. I am an experienced teacher and educator and have had epilepsy in my early years and also know how to live with ADHD. So all written information comes from an enthusiastic, spontaneous experience expert!
