Short film to help young children and young people with learning difficulties understand about PPE

The below short video has been made by the Suffolk Children's Centres Team, and shows people wearing PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and is for parents and carers to use with your child/children to talk about PPE and who you may see wearing it. This could be someone seeing you in your home, in the community, a clinic setting or in hospital. It helps to explain there is a real person under the PPE who is friendly and wants to help you and your child. The PPE is to keep us safe from a virus called corona.

You may want to talk about how your child feels seeing people in PPE. It might make your child feel worried, scared, find it interesting, or they may be confused, or they might feel fine about seeing PPE on people.

The Suffolk Children's Centre Team also suggests using role play to help support your child’s thoughts, ideas and feelings about PPE by:

  • Dressing up
  • Telling stories
  • Sharing images of people wearing different types of PPE like in the video.

To contact your local Childrens Centre for information and support go to www.suffolk.gov.uk/childrenscentres
