New Video Series from Safe Kids USA


We wanted to share with you a new video series for families of children with special needs that Safe   Kids USA recently launched online. The series is designed to help parents and caregivers prevent unintentional injury to children with special needs and provides them with the knowledge of what they can do to safety-proof their home. Along with safety tips and other important information, the videos are now available for viewing at www.safekids.org/specialneeds.
 

Safe Kids USA is dedicated to preventing unintentional childhood injury, which is the leading cause of death and disability to children ages 1 to 14. Our new video series, “Keeping Children with Special Needs Safe in the Home,” will cover five areas that pose great risk of injury and death to all children under the age of 14 in and around the home: fire and burn prevention, water safety, and general home safety – which includes poison, choking and fall prevention. 

These videos were developed in consultation with an advisory panel of experts and advocates in the field of child developmental disabilities. We are showcasing one of the five risk areas each month and invite you to use these videos on your Website and share them with your supporters. 

If you’d like to embed our videos on your site, please visit our YouTube page. Currently, six of the videos in our series are available:
