Dear Ouma Nkosi,
Finding the right school is so important and I know how impossible some places can be. Ideally you would need a remedial school or a mainstream school that will allow him to come to school with a facilitator. This is someone who will be with him at all times to ensure quick response should he have a seizure and/or to provide minimal academic assistance. Please visit www.epilepsy.org.za for more printable information you can take to the schools.
Best of luck,
Delia
