With its dedication and commitment to support students with seizures, the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota (EFMN) is proud to announce that St. Andrew Early Learning earned the distinction of being a seizure smart school.
Seizure Smart Schools brings students, teachers, school nurses, staff and families together to foster understanding of epilepsy in schools and teach seizure first aid. Schools and families work together with EFMN to alleviate stigma around seizures in classrooms and in the community.
More than 300,000 children in the U.S. have epilepsy, and one in ten people will have a seizure at some point in their lifetime. “Knowing how to respond to seizures is important. Supporting kids with seizures in schools so they can chase their dreams is critical and we are delighted to partner with St. Andrew Early Learning,” said EFMN Executive Director Heidi Fisher.
