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 St. Piers School has been a lifesaver and changer for both myself and my son. I cannot express how wonderful the staff are, so caring, kind and just amazing. A fantastic environment for any child with special needs.
