This toolkit is for education and childcare professionals supporting children and young people affected by stroke. These materials cover children in pre-school, primary and secondary schools, college and further education settings.
Stroke is often seen as only affecting older adults, but it can happen to anyone of any age, including babies, children and young people. Several hundred children have a stroke each year in the UK.
This publication was developed with teachers, parents, children and professionals. It provides key information about stroke in childhood, as well as practical tools to help with communication, planning and documentation in the classroom or childcare setting. Wherever possible, we’ve also signposted you to where you can find additional sources of information and support for professionals and families.
