Activity Spotlight: Finding Hazards in the Home
For children under 5 years the most common place of injury is in the home. During Fall Prevention Month this is a great opportunity to educate families and caregivers of young children about the potential hazards in their home while considering how their child’s abilities are constantly changing. During this webinar it will be demonstrated how images of standard rooms in a home can be used as a tool with families/caregivers to recognize hazards and discuss ways to mitigate those hazards.
