Some people who live with epilepsy or seizures may also have other disabilities and health conditions. There are also several epilepsy syndromes that can cause disability. Disability and community support workers, as well as other healthcare professionals, play a very significant role in providing appropriate care and support to those with complex health needs.

This section provides information for those in support positions, including facts about epilepsy and related health conditions and the importance of person-centred care. We also provide links to our resources and training programs for those working in these important sectors.

Other sections of this website provide more general information about seizures, seizure first aid (including for those who are wheelchair users), advocacy and inclusion, funding and much more.
