Epilepsy Queensland's Children's Program involves a lovable character called Little Poss (our mascot). We have published books based on Little Poss as he helps young children know how to be a friend to someone with epilepsy, what epilepsy is (and is not), and how to help someone who is having a seizure.
There is also the Little Poss Club. Members of this club receive a bi-monthly newsletter, a membership pack, birthday card and other benefits. For more information click here to visit our Little Poss page.
Another important feature of the Children's Program is our work in schools and childcare facilities. We provide information for teachers, guidance for parents, and classroom talks for students in which we discuss feelings about epilepsy and issues like teasing and bullying as well as seizure management.
