Will help with student drop out and parental safety concerns.

Children who are medicated are being allowed to participate in school activities without a medical staff on campus.  Students are being placed in traditional classes while medicated and expected to work at the same level as students without health issues.

Teachers argue with students without recognizing that the are speaking to a medicated student or a student having a partial seizure or in a post-leptical   stage..

Teachers accuse students of being lazy and un willing to work. This ignorance is cruel and hinders  students will and ability  to carry on with education.

Teachers do not follow 504 /IEP accordingly or take initiative to devote attention to special educational needs. Teachers and guidance counselors do not make or follow a IEP for students in their high school years.  Students are being transitioned out of school because and forced to go online which puts them at higher risk. 

High school students have a very Faulty ESE program .  Broward schools do not have teachers or classrooms  designed for children with learning obstacles. The use of over head projectors and visual items which cause seizures are being used in our class room because it helps the teachers but they take into consideration how that may  discomfort the Epileptics.

 School administrators have no safety protocol for students with seizures and have no concerns to educate themselves to understand the learning obstacles that students with epilepsy contend with.

Epilepsy is being ignored in the schools. The schools have no idea of how many students are in their schools that have epilepsy.  No special considerations are given to children with epilepsy.

Teachers do not understand the side effects of epilepsy and blame the students for their inability to complete their work in a timely manner without regards of their loss of memory or blackout periods..
