From Daly City, California, USA:

What videos are available for children over the age of three? Animation be a good teaching tool to explain what's going on in their little bodies -- how the various organs function, how they work together and of course special emphasis on the pancreas, bur they/we need the whole picture. If there are none then it is something to be considered -- something useful to all young and not so young.


I am not aware of any videos for pre-school children. We often use hospital play with this age, allowing the child to handle diabetes equipment (minus the needles) in doll play. Also, band-aids are really important for this age! Pre-schoolers have a poor sense of body integrity and believe that vital body fluids will continue to leak from a fingerstick.
