first seizure at school

Landon is 3 nonverbal asd and prone to febrile seizures.  Tuesday I sent him to prek fine, then an hour later they called that he had a seizure ( this is his 9th).  The teachers did great and I am glad he know enough to go sit on his teachers lap so he started convulsions in her arms.  They were aware he is prone to them and said other children had them too. But by the way they were so panicked I'm sure none of the other children have actually had one in front of them. He is doing great now no more fever, but they don't want him to go back to school until Monday just incase. The teacher, aid and nurse have each called to check on him, I love their relationship already.

 Bless his heart...poor little guy!

I'm sure they panicked a bit because it's still so upsetting to see something like that happen to a child even if you are experienced in those things. Love that they called to check on him!

Hope he's feeling better!

This is a scary situation but sounds like they knew and know how to handle them properly. These ladies are a blessing. Not many would call and check on a child. You are one lucky momma.

This made me cry. How much do our children have to go through? Poor little guy. I'm so happy he is feeling better and what a beautiful show of humanity that they called to check on him.

It sounds like he has a really caring, wonderful staff group at school.

Glad to hear he's feeling better and it is great that the school staff is so supportive. My daughter is 3 and nonverbal also, so I know how important it is to feel like the people who are caring for them really care.
