Your children may know that their muscles are “different,” and for this reason they need to see a “special muscle doctor” and wear cool “moon boots.” However, they may have more questions or want to know how to explain Duchenne to their friends. These videos is geared towards young kids to help educate them, their friends and siblings, and others close to the family about Duchenne, to help them better understand what Duchenne is and how it may affect the way they play and interact with friends and family. For additional resources on talking to your child about Duchenne, please visit the PPMD website.
