Why We Are Here
Why do we have Never Shake A Baby Arizona education project? Because we are dedicated to educating parents on how to cope with crying and about the dangers of shaking a baby.
Education efforts have been shown to be a simple and effective method of reducing the instances of Shaken Baby Syndrome. Stacy Turner, who is a friend and fellow board member of the Shaken Baby Alliance made a short video about her son Dylan that expresses this eloquently. Please take time to view this video of Dylan by clicking on his name below. If we can save just one child from being murdered or from a lifetime of disabilities through our education then all the effort is worth it.
If you can use a copy of the training DVD, please use "Contact Us" to tell us a little about how you would use it and how to contact you.
Feel free to use the powerpoints below to train personnel who work with families and young children—CASAs, foster parents, child care providers, Child Care Health Consultants, Healthy Families or Health Start home visitors, etc. The more people who have this information and will share it with parents and caregivers of young children, the better!
