An interactive toolkit to help parents and grandparents cope with the coronavalirus pandemics can help parents prepare for their children’s coronaviral infection, a researcher said Wednesday.
The interactive tool called “Waldorf School” was developed by Dr. Elizabeth K. Krieger, an assistant professor at the University of California, San Francisco.
It was released in March.
The tool was developed with the support of Dr. Mark M. Dickey, chief of the Division of Public Health Science at the Harvard School of Public Affairs.
Dr. Krieser said it is a resource for parents and caregivers, with the goal of assisting them with preparing for the new infection.
“It is the first tool I’ve ever created to help you understand what you’re going to be dealing with during the coming months,” she said.
“What are the major threats to your children’s health, and what are the most important precautions you should take?”
Krieger said parents and children should be aware of the potential symptoms of the coronas, including fever, cough, runny nose, rash, and fatigue.
The tool also provides tips on how to get help for any other symptoms.
It is also designed to help them determine the severity of the infection.
Parents can download the tool on the Web at www.waldorfschool.org, by phone at 1-888-WALDORF-1313, or by mail at:Krieer said parents can download their own version of the tool and keep it handy at home.
