Abstract

157 elementary teachers from Sondrio and Varese answered a questionnaire about school integration of epileptic children. The questionnaire consists of 19 questions, 16 with standard answers (yes, no, I don't know) and 3 with open ones. 90% of teachers favoured the complete integration of these children at school. 10% of teachers expressed prejudice towards epileptic patients. The overall knowledge of the problem was very scarce. Teachers would like to share responsibility with an auxiliary colleague. The need for an integrated approach (medical, psychological and social) to the problem of the epileptic child was voiced by most of the teachers. 97% of teaching personnel take issue with parents that conceal the diagnosis to the school.
