Teaching videos for lessons in schools
We have put a collection of educational videos together which you may find useful when discussing allergy topics in the classroom.
The video shown describes what it’s like to live with an allergy from a child’s point of view. Play the video in a lesson to help peers develop an understanding of how an allergy can affect people emotionally not just physically.
