Today’s children are tomorrow’s citizen. The prosperity of a nation depends upon the health of the future children. This is true especially for our country where this segment of population consist about one-fourth of the total population. All the parents have fruitful ambition to have healthy child. Healthy children grow to become healthy adults who are strong enough both in body and mind. The resources spent on the care; upkeep and health of all young ones are investment for the future. Epilepsy is the common neurological condition in the children. As it hits the most important formative years of the majority of the patients, education does get hampered, especially when parents are over protective and teachers are either non-supportive or neutral with negative attitude. What is needed is awareness and proper education about different type of seizures, do’s and don’ts during an attack to the teachers. Once teachers accept and have empathy for them, peers would automatically accept them. Cordial ambience is bound to stimulate these children to study in sprit of the limitations due to seizures and antiepileptic drugs. They may not be the best but they must be encouraged to be their best.1 Epilepsy is known to men since centuries.
