Falls are the most common cause of emergency hospital admissions across all age groups. Look who's falling is a DVD resource pack focusing on falls scenarios for young children; windows, stairs and high chairs.
Using footage from a child's eye view, reconstructions and interviews with parents and a consultant paediatric neurologist, the 15-minute film shows how easily accidents happen and how they can be prevented.
The pack includes support cards that provide background information for discussion and 100 copies of How safe am I from a serious fall? Flyer. Perfect for group work with parents and carers.
