Name: Karis Charley
Age: 17
Year of the Fix: 2017
Location: Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham
Campaign: To show teachers how to help pupils with epilepsy

My sister was diagnosed with epilepsy when she was six months old. She's four now and has just started primary school. 

 

I made a booklet with my sister in mind - I wanted to make sure that staff had the correct knowledge to provide support for her. 

 

The booklet shows what to do to help her before, during and after a seizure. 

 

I'd like to share it with as many schools as possible and I hope that teachers will feel more confident supporting children with epilepsy after reading it. 

 

 

Codie O'Grady and Eve Sibley helped me with this Fix.
