November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month. The goal of this month is to spotlight epilepsy and raise awareness. Slick Chicks are strong advocates of this effort and of the epilepsy community. We support the goal of educating the public about epilepsy and seizures and to fight social stigma.
The most important part of interacting with someone who has a disability is seeing that person for whom he or she is, and not what disability that person has. What it boils down to is having a sense of disability awareness and disability etiquette. The point is to help raise awareness and change societal perceptions.
