Support Epilepsy/Seizure Legislation in California
March 16, 2020 | By Sarah Dailey |
On February 6, 2020, Assembly Member Levine, Assembly Member Blanca Rubio, and Senator Umberg introduced the Seizure Safe Schools Act (AB 2116). This bill will improve the care of students with epilepsy in schools by ensuring:
1. Prescribed FDA-approved medications are administered to the student with epilepsy
2. Students have a seizure action plan in their file and that the action plan is properly distributed to any school personnel responsible for the supervision of the students
3. School personnel and students to be trained in seizure recognition and response using the Epilepsy Foundation training materials.
