Every week we read or hear about another child injured or who died due to violent shaking or resulting impact. Shaken Baby Impact Syndrome (SBIS) is the medical term used to describe the violent shaking and the possible impact during the incident, and, the results sustained from it. This form of child abuse can result in serious brain injury, seizures, mental retardation, paralysis, blindness, broken bones, learning difficulties, delayed development, and more. One shaken baby in four dies.
One of our main goals is to educate early in life to prevent, and reduce, the number of victims of Shaken Baby Impact Syndrome through prevention and education efforts. The Epilepsy Association of Central Florida has specifically designed a video and teaching curriculum that can be used by teachers, health educators, childcare advocates, and the community at large. This presentation includes our award winning and nationally distributed 10-minute video, a detailed teaching curriculum, a pre-test, and other information on Shaken Baby Impact Syndrome. The presentation, including time for discussion, can be completed in about 30 minutes. There is also a post-test to administer after the presentation to see what your participants learned. If you would like a copy of the video and teaching curriculum, click, "Purchase Educational DVD" at the top right of this page. Since we are a not-for-profit organization, the cost of the video and teaching program are only $15.00 to help offset our costs involved in bringing it to you.
If you would like assistance with your presentation or, for any questions you may have, please kindly fill out our form on the connect Page. If you are in the state of Florida and you wish to have someone make the presentation for you we can also make those arrangements with one of our Prevention and Education Coordinators throughout the state.
