Epilepsy Awareness Month – Teacher & Administrator Resources

Let’s bring Purple Day to your School

March marks Epilepsy Awareness Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness about epilepsy across Canada. Together with Purple Day, we aim to increase understanding and acceptance for individuals and families impacted by epilepsy.

Teaching young children about epilepsy, its impacts, and how their support makes a difference helps in creating more inclusive schools for students affected by epilepsy. Join us in spreading awareness and making a difference!
