Epilepsy Services of NJ (ESNJ) understands the importance of training school personnel about seizure first aid, and has been providing seizure recognition and first aid training to school-aged youth, school nurses, school personnel, and first responders for over 30 years. These programs help to educate and raise awareness about epilepsy and seizure disorders while providing life-saving seizure first aid training. ESNJ trains thousands of individuals annually.
ESNJ is a state approved provider of the seizure recognition and first aid training.
Paul’s Law will require that all school personnel are trained in seizure recognition and first aid and that school districts have an individualized seizure action plan for each student who has epilepsy. ESNJ is working closely with Paul Quinn St. Pierre, a 13 year old self-advocate who is passionate about ensuring that school personnel and his peers are trained in seizure recognition and first aid.
T.R.U.S.T. Training: 1 out of 10 people may have a seizure during his or her lifetime. That means seizures are common, and one day you might need to help someone during or after a seizure.
