HARRISBURG – The PA House Education Committee approved a bill promoting the training of school personnel in seizure recognition and response. House Bill 416, referred to as the “DOMinate Epilepsy Law,” would make the completion of a PA Department of Health approved online course in seizure recognition and first aid for professional continuing education credit. The Department of Health approved online course will be provided by a national nonprofit foundation with an understanding of epilepsy and seizure disorders. According to the Epilepsy Foundation, one in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy at some point in their life. Over 150,000 Americans are diagnosed with epilepsy every year. Bill supporters say it’s important that educators know how to recognize and respond to students experiencing a seizure.
