Most schools will require you to complete forms for their internal files on the medications and doses your child receives. It is important that these documents are kept up to date to assure appropriate epilepsy management.
These forms will often include:
- Student medical history
- Medication authorization form
- Authorization for release of medical information
In addition to completing these documents, it is important to assure that your child has the necessary supplies needed for their school day. This will include daily medications given during school hours, rescue medications, any adaptive equipment (such as a cooling vest or tinted glasses), and a copy of their Seizure Action Plan. You should discuss with your child’s teacher and the school nurse where these items will be kept to assure they are readily accessible as needed.
