Recommended Resources for Child Safety Prevention

Each year, unintentional and intentional injuries take a devastating toll on children and families. Nationwide, unintentional injury continues to be the leading cause of death among children ages 1-14. Fortunately, Home Visitors and other Birth to Three providers can play a vital role in preventing child injury. Home Visitors already offer screening, education, coaching, and empowerment to parents around child development, parent-child attachment, and access to health care and other services. As they build relationships with parents, they can use this timely opportunity to deliver key messages around child safety, and they can connect parents with information and resources to reduce risk of child injury.
