Helping Our Kids Understand Flu Prevention

Our kids with special needs can use extra support in learning flu prevention skills and good hygiene such as coughing into your sleeve and washing hands properly. The good folks at One Place for Special Needs have put together a comprehensive collection of nearly 40 online resources for parents and educators. You’ll find social stories, how-to videos, activities, a communication board for being sick, and visual supports for all ages on hand washing, sneezing, coughing and blowing your nose.

You’ll also find H1N1 resources for parents and teachers, Google flu tracker, lesson plans on germs and emergency planning for people with disabilities.

  1. This is an outstanding post. Thank you! My 2-1/2 year old daughter has cerebral palsy, a seizure disorder, and a variety of other sensory and cognitive developmental delay problems. Her pediatrician's practice didn't even offer a list for at-risk kids to sign up for vaccination or provide any H1NI informational material for parents to read to educate ourselves.
