Animations for Children
One of the activities within SCOOTER was working with local nurse counsellors in Leicester to start thinking about resources for children. The team I spoke with felt that making something in the form of an animation, that could help explain sickle cell to children, would be hugely beneficial.
Even better, we thought, wouldn’t it be great to get the children to produce some pictures and materials themselves. However, that is where we ground to a halt and the project would have required NHS ethics and taken effort and time that although all very exciting and important, were well outside of our timing and funding capabilities.
I would still be interested in exploring this again – although I’m now living in Bristol. Here are some basic animated resources that we did start to develop, based on some of their paper-based resources.
