Welcome to Super Safe Kids

 

Safety for kids and families

Super Safe Kids resources teach kids and their families about safety and self-advocacy skills for the home, the community and the health care setting. Focusing on everyday health and safety issues, Super Safe Kids provides tools and information to increase engagement in health and safety, reduce healthcare disparities, and improve self-advocacy skills for kids and their families.  

The Super Safe Kids philosophy

Safety is about preventing danger, not just avoiding it. Super Safe Kids takes a step-by-step approach to safety issues, using kid-friendly language and evidence-based safety practices for kids and families.

Super Safe Kids’ tools are for all children, with special topics for kids with medical needs and disabilities. The tools promote health literacy and family engagement as a way to improve safety and health and reduce disparities.
