Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In our daily life we use memory, language, and executive function to think. When a child experiences seizures one, two, or all three of these abilities are disrupted. The disruption is dependent upon where a seizure is experienced in the brain. Possible disruptions include: stored information becoming disorganized, ability to find words, and the ability to stop unwanted behavior. We aim to assist students with epilepsy learn to reduce and manage educational issues including:
1) academic problems
2) language problems
3) attention and concentration problems
4) slower processing of information
5) short-term memory loss

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Short term memory loss, attention and concentration problems, language problems, and academic problems often plague students with epilepsy. Our goal is to provide tools and resources to help students succeed in school and beyond.
The organization's programs and initiatives focus on working with hospitals, schools, and individual families to provide more information and resources to assist the Super Kids in their lives. These initiatives include:

•Educational games that focus on improving short term memory loss

•Individualized tutoring for students with epilepsy or seizures

•Memory exercises

•Resources that may be used in the home and at school

We provide educational games to children with epilepsy in the neurological and EEG observation floors of the hospital. All games have educational benefits that directly impact children with epilepsy. Homemade and store bought game suggestions are provided on the organization's website to assist with children at home.
Recommended Games, a Seizure Action Plan, and a Education Plan are available in PDF format to assist parents, teachers, nurses, and the public with seizure awareness and understanding.
Individualized tutoring is available for students with epilepsy and seizures. Tutors are trained in CPR/First Aid/AED, IEP and 504's, and seizure action plans. Tutors volunteer their time, in a subject area of expertise, to participating children who have epilepsy or seizures as a side effect of another disorder/disease.

Our organization donates it profits to donating educational games to children in the hospital and First Aid training for tutors. Games are purchased and delivered by a member of our Board of Directors or Executive Director. Seizure Action and Educational Plans are provided to schools, as well as available at our booth at expos. Recommended games are provided to donors, schools, and those wishing to host a game drive. Volunteers donate hours as a tutor to qualifying students.

We received updates from parents who reached out through a game donation their child received. We are looking forward to continuing to donate educational games to children in the hospital, as well as create new programming. We are looking forward to sharing our tutoring program with guidance counselors at schools. This allows us to assist more children with epilepsy outside of school.
