Having a blood test

The purpose of this sequence of visuals is to allow people with special needs to understand what will happen when they go for a blood test. The hope is that in knowing what will happen anxiety and adverse reactions to the needle might be reduced.

These pictures were made up on request  for a client that had to go for regular blood tests. It includes the basic procedure for collecting blood samples - putting on tourniquet, nurse putting needle in, looking away, staying still, tourniquet and needle being removed, plaster/band-aid applied and then finished with a reward.
