Diagnosis assessment

It’s crucial that we have a detailed and in-depth understanding of our pupils’ medical needs. That’s why we conduct a comprehensive diagnosis and assessment of each child.

Before assessment

  • Pupils are visited by the specialist epilepsy nurse
  • Parents provide a medical and seizure history
  • Pupils are observed in school

During assessment

  • The paediatric neurologist, diagnostic staff nurse and psychologist assess pupils
  • EEGs can be offered to students to gain an understanding of epilepsy.
  • Video telemetry is usually included and lasts 48 hours

After assessment

  • Initial feedback is given to parents
  • A full report is sent four weeks later

Feedback from parents

Quote Icon My grandson has a severe epileptic condition. He has Lennox Gaustaut syndrome and difficult to control seizures. He can have many seizures throughout day and night. He was attending a special needs school but when he became the age of 16-17 years they could not meet his medical needs or physical needs. It was discussed that he would benefit from going to Young Epilepsy. How lucky he is to go there. It is an absolute school of excellence. He does and goes places that I never thought he would do. The heads, the teachers and all professional people are there to give and help with advice, care, and the vast experience of epilepsy. He cooks, swims, canoeing, archery and lots more. He is very happy and so am I. I do not worry about him as I have every confidence in everyone at the Young Epilepsy.
