Discovery Education engages in creating partnerships, both national and global, to bring the best professional development into our classrooms and homes. November is National Epilepsy Month and Discovery has partnered with the Epilepsy Foundation to launch Understanding Epilepsy – a site designed to broaden the understanding of epilepsy and erase stigmas associated with seizure disorders. I spent about an hour, maybe less, previewing the materials, and was impressed with this new partnership at DE. I think you will be as well.
Online at www.discoveryeducation.com/epilepsy, you’ll find a wealth of free materials developed by the Epilepsy Foundation including:
• Lesson plans
• First aid guides
• Seizure training for school personnel
• Online training for school nurses focused on managing students with seizures
• Videos featuring teens who speak out about living with epilepsy.
Discovery has a SPECIAL OFFER!
Be one of the first 50 teachers or school personnel to send us your feedback regarding the Epilepsy Foundation’s materials and you’ll receive a free Discovery Education DVD.
Teens who register on GoEYC.org can receive a free laptop skin! Learn more here.
