Internet Safety Tips From Special Needs Jungle

"The internet is a big and scary place, and that’s just for the grown-ups. While we think our kids may have it licked because they know all the memes and cool terms, they are still kids and can lack the experience and the discernment to know when something may put their privacy or safety at risk, especially if they have learning disabilities or are especially naïve."

Special Needs Jungle have some valuable information on their web pages for parents and carers and young people to consider how best to keep safe whilst using the internet.  Please click on the attached link for further details https://www.specialneedsjungle.com/interweb-safety-day-stuff-dont-know-parents/

Children in and around cars

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) began looking into the safety of children in and around cars after a toddler was tragically killed having been struck by a car on a driveway in 2007.  They acknowledge that "Every parent knows that it is impossible to keep an eye on young children every second of the day.  Youngsters want to explore and try things out, without understandnig potential dangers."  

As part of the RoSPA and Iain's Trust research, their report concluded with the  advice:

  • Never leave children alone in a car
  • Make absolutely sure there are no children in the driveway or road before moving your car
  • Always keep your car locked when parking outside your house
  • Discourage children from playing in the driving seat - a car is not a toy
  • Always keep your car keys in a safe place - consider fitting a keybox with a combination lock
  • Check if your car has a feature to prevent accidental starting and look for this when you replace your car.

Please see attached the leaflets which deliver vital safety information.
