Epilepsy advice

16th May 1997 at 01:00
RADAR (Royal Association for Disability And Rehabilitation) endorses the comments made by Mary Graydon in her letter about the exclusion of children with epilepsy from school trips (TES, May 2).

RADAR believes lack of knowledge about the implications of educating a child with a disability often causes problems.

Schools need information and advice which will give staff the confidence to deal with disabled children in all aspects of school life. This is why RADAR has produced Children First. It covers issues surrounding children with impairments, one chapter covers school trips. TES readers could increase their understanding of the issues around education and disability by reading it.
