Early Years Disability Awareness & Inclusion - EYFS Development Matters
Spend time exploring the different kinds of people who can help if we get ill, have problems at school, or are feeling sad. Suitable for foundation or year 1 pupils.
Who do we go to when we need help?
Sit together with your class informally, perhaps in a circle on the carpet. Discuss the different kinds of people who can help if we get ill, have problems at school, or are feeling sad. This forum can be used to discuss getting ill and disability in general, the impact on the family and how we can ask for help.
Children will then colour-in and label a cartoon of either the Sky Badger doctor, teacher, inventor, friend or family member, labelling each one with the skills and qualities they need to come to our rescue.

Pupils can make a poster or do a presentation of when they met a ‘superhero’ that helped them when they needed help medically, emotionally or to support a disability.
