The Mission of the Svetlana Masgutova Educational Institute (SMEI) is to provide health, wellness and educational professionals, parents, and caregivers with non-invasive techniques to address maturational, developmental, and life challenges.

Course Description:

Epilepsy is a seizure disorder that involves loss of consciousness and motor (muscular) control. A person with a seizure disorder often experiences muscle convulsions. The condition is caused by a sudden change in electrical activity in the brain, caused by chemical changes in nerve cells. Seizures have different forms, and can affect different people in different ways.

Class covers:
• Definition of epilepsy
• Classification and types of seizures, including non-epileptic seizures
• The process of seizures and it’s negative effect on neurodevelopment, and learning
• MNRI® approach in working with epilepsy
• MNRI® Seizure Protocol

Learner Objectives:

  1. Explain the development of epilepsy, risk factors, forms of epilepsy (seizures) and syndromes associated with it.
  2. Describe the effects of seizures on physical, emotional and cognitive development.
  3. Describe the neuro-anatomical dysfunctions of the brain at seizure, how stimulus processing takes place in the brain during a seizure, and how the brain negatively effects the reflex patterns at the time of a seizure.
  4. Demonstrate how to utilize the reflex integration tools during an epilepsy attack, preventively when there is no epilepsy attack and to recognize and observe the causes of epilepsy seizures.
  5. Explain the diagnostic tests for epilepsy and tools to provide the reflex protocol in order to accompany first aid for attacks, accompanying attacks and caring for the individual.
  6. Explain the MNRI therapeutic protocol used during seizure and after waking up.
