First Aid and Safety Tips for Children
Thanks to the internet, there is a ton of accessible first aid information at our fingertips. One website I found to help with childhood first aid concerns is Kids Health. The site has a rather substantial section on First Aid and Safety with instructions on what to do when your child gets hurt. The site covers everything from falls and frostbite to seizures and broken bones. The website also offers a good deal of safety tips for various events and holidays to help prevent your child from being harmed.

Talking First Aid Kit
Carl Augusto of the American Foundation for the Blind Blog posted the following about this great product.
I think it's always important to keep safety in mind, so I thought I'd let you know about a new product from intelligentFirstAidT, the First Aid "talking" Kit. The Kit includes nine injury-specific packs to help treat common injuries, including Bleeding, Head & Spine Injury, and Shock. The packs are individually labeled and color-coded, which I love because it would help someone with low vision easily distinguish the packs. The best part, though, is that with the press of a button, the audio component attached to each card provides step-by-step instructions to manage the wound. Situations often become chaotic when a loved one, an acquaintance, or even you, experiences a minor injury. With this tool, people with low vision can remain calm and have an idea of how to handle things without worrying about reading any print.
Check out the intelli gentFirstAidT website to purchase the product or get more information. The site even allows you to listen to a sample of the audio component of the kit.
