Signalong tutors launch Young Epilepsy Manual

Young Epilepsy has its very own Signalong manual, thanks to a generous donation from education technology specialist JISC.

The Young Epilepsy Topic Vocabulary Manual features 400 words specially chosen by the charity’s staff. The book was commissioned to meet the needs of students at St Piers, Young Epilepsy’s specialist school and further education college.

Young Epilepsy Chief Executive David Ford said: “This is a really exciting development and we’re really proud of our Signalong manual. It will help St Piers’ students and teachers alike and I’d like to say a huge thanks to everyone involved in developing the manual and to JISC for funding it.”

The manual was launched with a ceremony at Young Epilepsy’s headquarters. There was a presentation about Signalong and attendees learned signs for tea, coffee and other snacks.

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.
