Today we had the first session of our ‘Look After your Lungs’ project.
This project is funded by NHS England, they would like us to raise awareness of the importance of looking after your lungs as respiratory (breathing) conditions are one of the biggest causes of early death for people with learning disabilities. As part of the project we will be looking at; how the lungs work, what they do for us, knowing when something is wrong, how we can look after them.
Today we researched how the lung work and what they do for us and we also looked at some breathing exercises to help us breathe better.
At the end of the project we will be producing a booklet that will help people with learning disabilities to improve the health of their lungs.
