Education and Training
No one likes to hear a baby or child cry for a long time. Here are some things you can try when your baby is crying, as well as how to detect symptoms of SBS and some ways to prevent it.
Wisconsin is one of only a handful of states that requires public schools to deliver instruction about Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS). The Wisconsin legislation was passed in 2006. And while we wholeheartedly support the intent of the legislation, the fact is, there’s no state funding available to support or police its implementation. As a result, school districts are left to fend for themselves. Many simply don’t bother attempting to fulfill the SBS curriculum mandate. Others deliver content that isn’t complete. We’re uniquely positioned to change that so this school program is the first step in fulfilling the intent of this law.
