What’s included in this program?

More safety for yourself and others

People of all ages with communication challenges together with the people that care for them can learn and practice ‘People Safety’ skills through a series of short lessons – which includes captioned videos, skills applied in real-life, both with and without the use of spoken language, as well as guidance for step-by-step skills practices.

‘People Safety’ Skills

Learn important skills you can use right away to help you — or a person you support, make a problem better instead of bigger, have better communication and healthier relationships.

Hands On Practices

Kidpower can help you practice your Safety Powers so these skills become safety habits and help you and the people you care about lead happier, safer lives.
