Sesame Street for Military Families: Caregiver Resources
When one family member needs care during a long-term illness or injury, the whole family becomes part of the caregiving picture – even young children. But, there are few tools to help little ones understand the changes caregiving can bring to their day-to-day lives.

Sesame Street for Military Families: Caregiving looks to fill that need. New activities, starring the Sesame Street Muppets, help kids understand why their parent may look or act differently than “before,” how to talk about their family’s situation with others, and more. Rosita – a familiar face from Sesame Street – stars alongside her mother and her father, who uses a wheelchair after an injury. Created with the help of expert advisors and backed by Sesame Workshop’s early childhood research, the initiative will allow caregiving families to remember that they’re not alone. And that it’s always okay to ask for help.

Register today to join us and learn more about Sesame Street for Military Families: Caregiving, which looks at family-based care from a child’s point of view.

All Sesame Street for Military Families: Caregiving videos and materials are bilingual in English and Spanish and entirely free for families. Learn more at ssic.org/veterancaregiving
