Seizure Safe Schools

Important Update

At EFCT’s 2023 Annual Advocacy Day in March, supporters, PWE, doctors, representatives, and parents visited the state capital. There we shared stories about the importance of SSS. After a tearful discussion, we have got campaign as a bill on the Governor’s desk!

With Governor Ned Lamont’s signing of Public Act 23-160, it is now required by law that local and regional boards of education for public schools provide an in-service training program for certified school personnel on seizure recognition and first-aid response, as well as information about seizure action plans for students, and, for those authorized to administer medication, the administration of seizure rescue therapies, including the use of a vagus nerve stimulator magnet.

A special thank you to Jessica Loffredo, the mom who made all of this happen!
