Educational Resources for Teachers about Shaken Baby Impact Syndrome
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 illness, paralysis, blindness, broken bones, learning difficulties, delayed development, and more. One shaken baby in four dies.
The Epilepsy Association has specifically designed a DVD that can be used by teachers, health educators, childcare advocates, and the community at large. This award-winning, highly acclaimed, and nationally distributed 7-minute DVD is for all audiences, and, especially targeted to young males that are unfortunately the main perpetrator of Shaken Baby Impact Syndrome. 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.
If you have any questions we are here to help you. Please kindly fill out our form on the Connect Page. If you are in Florida and wish to have someone make the presentation on SBIS we can also make those arrangements with one of our Prevention and Education Coordinators throughout the state.
