dc.description.abstract This study focuses on the way in which learners living with epilepsy, who attend mainstream schools in the rural areas of the Limpopo Province, experience epilepsy. The results of the study indicate that the needs of learners with epilepsy are not well-catered for in mainstream schools. They often experience fear, anxiety, humiliation, ostracisation, name-calling, scape-goating, blaming and suspicion. Recommendations were made regarding the measures which should be taken to address the needs of rural children living with epilepsy. These recommendations could be used by teachers and the Department of Education. en
