However, this does not mean that it will happen to your child. We know from research that the risk of learning problems is related to a number of factors, including age of seizure onset, type of seizures, number of seizure types the child experiences, type and number of medications, and frequency of seizures.

School personnel need to know what you do for your child during a seizure. Do they need to protect your child from falling or guide your child if she begins to wander? Should they just observe the seizure while providing reassurance to other students? Will they need to help your child get back on task when the seizure is over? Will your child need a change of clothes at school due to incontinence during the seizure?

Is your child unable to read math story problems, but able to read his reading textbook? Does your child still have to do the math story problems even if he can not read?
