"The session was very informative and exactly what my group of drivers needed to have as it enables them to use what they learnt if ever in a situation with an epileptic person. Whether that be with students they are transporting or during their day to day life."

“The Epilepsy First Aid book was a great read and affirms things that I have learnt from one of the Para cyclists I coach and his family that has epilepsy. Especially just keeping him safe until the seizure is over. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to increase their knowledge related to epilepsy and caring for those that have the condition.”
Kerry Reyburn (Para cycling coach, Whangarei)
"Krystle recently came and spoke at both of our support group meetings. Not only did she talk about her fabulous book and how it came about, she also shared her personal story of living with epilepsy and the challenges she has faced because of this. Krystle is an articulate speaker who easily communicates her message. Everyone who came to the group learned and gained a lot from it. Thanks so much Krystle."

"The World Health Organisation states that “Epilepsy is the most common serious brain disorder worldwide with no age, racial, social class, national nor geographic boundary.” One person in 20 will have an epileptic seizure at some time in their life. Witnessing an epileptic seizure can be traumatic as the observer feels helpless and often think the person seizing is dying. Having a basic knowledge of what a seizure is, the different types of seizures, what they look like, and what to do when you see one is invaluable for people who are not familiar with epilepsy. If they find themselves in a situation where someone has a seizure near them it will help them manage this better which will be beneficial for the person with epilepsy. This Epilepsy First Aid book produced by Krystle Crimmins provides up to date information and is a useful tool for anyone wanting to improve their epilepsy first aid knowledge."

Re publication Epilepsy First Aid by Krystle Crimmins
"I am happy to endorse this publication written by Krystle. This is entirely her work with some revision re syndrome classification which changes frequently.
It presents a view on the management of epileptic seizures as seen from the perspective of a person with epilepsy rather than a clinician and as such is pretty novel.
Krystle is very motivated and I wish the publication every success"
