Welcome to the Epilepsy and Learning Disability Toolbox. This Toolbox is designed to be used by professionals who have a specific interest in managing the epilepsy of people with learning disabilities.
If you are looking for more general information about epilepsy or wish to access a wider range of professional or patient information and services see our Useful Links page.
Epilepsy is a common condition in the population of people who have learning disabilities. Communication issues, severity and impact of the epilepsy, and complicated care arrangements all present management challenges which are not usual in the general population.
The Toolbox offers instant access from any clinical setting to a range of practical tools including protocols, care plans, assessments, and information. These relate specifically to the management of the complex epilepsy and care issues found in this group.
For ease of use the forms in the toolbox have not been locked. However, we ask that you do not make changes without prior discussion with the Epilepsy and Learning Disability Service.
Access to the presentations in the Toolbox has been restricted for copyright reasons. If you need to access the presentations please contact Alison Corp on:
