Education is an essential aspect of life and epilepsy does not in any way prevent an individual from successfully attaining it. However, the condition has been classified by some as a mental challenge. As a result some people with epilepsy have been denied the right to access education even though they can attend classes and gain knowledge like anyone else. On the other hand it is important to note that the condition places an additional challenge upon those who live with it.
Epilepsy presents with symptoms such as memory loss and seizures which can interfere with the normal learning process. It is essential not to let it limit or deny access to education. Staying at home would not only take away one’s chance to advance in the labor market but also take away the chance to interact with peers. You would also be missing out on socializing and this may lead to isolation and loneliness.
