Emergency Physician Questions Seizures

What should I do if my child has a seizure?

My son had a seizure recently at school, and I wasn't around when it happened. The school responded quickly to him, thank god, but it was still scary. But both me and my husband don't even know what steps we should take in case my son has another seizure. In case he does, what steps do we need to take to help him?

He should be evaluated by a pediatric neurologist
If it’s his first seizure he needs a full medical evaluation
