Children & Young People

Our presentations have been created to raise awareness and increase understanding of alopecia areata. Whilst these presentations have primarily been designed to be delivered in schools, they are also suitable for any setting where it would be helpful for young people to learn more about alopecia. This includes nurseries, youth clubs, sports clubs and brownies/cubs/guides/scouts meetings.

We have three presentations designed for three different age groups, with the content being slightly different dependant on the age of the intended audience. Each presentation covers some of the following topics:

  • What is alopecia?
  • Can you catch alopecia?
  • What it is like to have alopecia (including personal slide option)
  • How do people deal with having alopecia?
  • How can you help someone with alopecia?

You can tailor these presentations to meet your needs. We have included an optional slide containing a video of people talking about their experiences of alopecia. If you are helping a young person with alopecia in your school or group, you may wish to ask them if they would like to include a slide about their own personal experience.
