I found this amazing fact sheet from “SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.) On how to talk to children about Infectious Disease Outbreaks. I thought the information was perfect for each age group and it covers all the Early Childhood age groups from infants to 8-year-olds. Plus it has additional information for teenagers.
The fact sheet is for Caregivers, Parents, and Teachers. I put a copy of this blog on the parent’s page, so parents can access it from there.
If you would like a copy of any of these fact sheets, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope this information brings some peace to you, your children and students.
