4. Seizure Disorder Training - For all principals, guidance counselors, and teachers - new requirement as of July 1, 2019.

The law requires each new hire to engage in at least one hour of self-study in the review of seizure disorder materials.(KRS 158.070 (3)(b)) Educators may explore available training materials by conducting simple searches on-line; many options are available. Should the district desire to approve and vet training material, that is within the district’s discretion to do so. I have conducted a preliminary search on behalf of districts and found free, expert-created and research-based sources for seizure disorder training materials:

The Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana is excited to announce that the Seizure Training for Educators program is now available for educators to access.  This program is approximately 1-hour in length, fulfills the requirements of HB 147, and will ensure that educators in Kentucky are properly trained to recognize and respond to multiple seizure types, as well as emotionally support a student with epilepsy while at school.  You can access the program at the Foundation's website at www.efky.org, or by clicking the following link:  https://www.brainshark.com/efky/vu?pi=zHFzyVwezaJAz0
