Today is International Epilepsy Day, and this year Epilepsy Australia is shining a light on the fact that less than 5% of the 9,500 schools across Australia have any form of Epilepsy training for their teachers.

Across 261 Tasmanian schools, approximately 404 students have Epilepsy, with the condition affecting each person differently.

The Epilepsy Smart Schools (ESS) program aims to create inclusive and supportive educational environments for all students living with epilepsy.

Listen as Wendy Groot, CEO of Epilepsy Tasmania and President of Epilepsy Australia, joins Fairsy to discuss the program.
