24 Sep Preschool Materials and Resources Explaining Alzheimer’s for Parents and Teachers
Montana State University Extension is piloting Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness for Children: Storybook Series. The program helps parents educate and support their children and families who may be experiencing a family member or neighbor with Alzheimer’s disease. This program also provides materials for teachers to educate preschool children about Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s disease is rapidly growing in the United States. According to the 2020 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures Report, one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. When a family member has Alzheimer’s, everyone in that family is affected, including children. Montana State University Extension has developed this storybook series with the goal to increase awareness and knowledge about Alzheimer’s disease among children and their parents.
