Epilepsy is neither an illness or a disease, but rather a tendency of the brain to be triggered to cause a spasm, a seizure or a fit, when neurones malfunction temporarily. Seizures can vary from major attacks which involve the whole brain to very minor, momentary 'absences.' This lively and interesting book provides advice on the most effective teaching and learning strategies that can be used in the classroom to help students with epilepsy. Highly readable, practical and informative, this book will prove invaluable for teachers, trainees, SENCOs and teaching assistants. >
