Thank you. That’s great advice

This is timely. A new child at my sons school has epilepsy. They’re 10. The children have seen her fitting a couple of times and have been frightened. As far as I can tell they’d not been informed of her condition or told anything prior to her fitting. We’ve (obviously) reassured our own children, explained why / how and that they shouldn’t be frightened but are there any resources, suitable for 10 year olds, to explain things, or even make suggestions on how they can help when she has a fit?

I also want to make sure the other kids are kind to her and I think this’ll come from them understanding her condition better.
