Hudson River Center for Program Development, Glenmont, NY.
This workbook was developed to help adult literacy students learn about first aid in order to help themselves and others. It contains information sheets, student worksheets, and answers to the worksheets. The information sheets are coordinated with an available audiotape. Some of the topics covered in the workbook are the following: handling an emergency; first aid for adults, children, and infants (breathing, bleeding, shock, injuries, poisoning, breaks and sprains burns, choking, heart attacks, temperature-related conditions; snakebites, insect bites); and finding community resources for further help. Three appendixes provide information on the contents of a first-aid kit and vomiting in cases of poisoning; a glossary lists 28 terms that are underlined in the workbook. (KC)
