Think! Education

Managing sensitivities and diversity

Teaching staff using this resource should be aware of any child whose family member may have been involved in a serious traffic incident. Special sensitivity will need to be shown in these cases and it may be appropriate to pre-warn the child's parent/carer so they are able to prepare the child for the THINK! Education activities.

Diversity is also an important issue as there will be a wide range in children's awareness of roads, traffic, signs and safety procedures depending on many factors. Some children may come from homes where there is no car, for example. The activities may also need to be adapted for urban and rural locations, although we have tried to ensure that a range of situations and environments is represented in the materials.
