How to Support a Child with CF in Pre-School; A Guide to Help Parents Navigate the First Steps into Pre-School Setting.
This booklet was developed by the Cork City Childcare Company.
Ann-Marie Kavanagh has three children with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), who attend Temple Street Children's University Hospital, Dublin. When their children were younger, Ann-Marie and her husband discovered that there was little information available in a story format that explained CF treatment in an age-appropriate way.
'Catherine's Time to Shine' is an exciting and easy-to-read book that cleverly puts Catherine at the centre of the story and at the same time explains in a child-friendly manner why she needs to take her Creon and have regular physiotherapy.
'Matthew O'Brien: The Big Match' is Anne-Marie's first book. It covers the same treatment for CF but the central character is male.
This booklet, produced by the Citizens Information Board, provides information on dealing with the practical and material matters that arise following a death and it is intended as a guide for people who have been recently bereaved.
It contains general information on what to do immediately after a death and the taxation, legal and financial issues that may arise, including social welfare payments. It does not provide detailed information on all these matters but does provide information about where to go for further information and support.
