Explaining COVID-19

Explaining the recent changes to students can be difficult. To help students understand the situation here are a couple of resources created by n2Y to help explain closures due to COVID-19.

Staying Healthy Social Narrative

Social narratives help explain situations by answering the "who, "what," "when," "where," and "why" of events in a story format. They are written from the first person point of view and typically include visual supports. Social narratives can help children or adults with disabilities understand difficult situations. Below is a sample of the n2y Staying Healthy Social Narrative. For the full story click here: Staying Healthy

Handwashing is Essential

Visual supports help all learners but they are vital to students who are visual learners. Here is a sequence board to help encourage hand washing at home. Singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star or the ABCs are a great way to encourage children to wash their hands for 20 seconds.

Communication is Key

Providing students alternate ways to communicate is essential. Families can use this communication board to help their child communicate how they are feeling by pointing or looking. When the child points to an image, families can say the word to model language and encourage the child to say it out load. Approximations are great and it doesn't have to be perfect. Accepting and recognizing total communication is key to developing language skills.

Establishing a daily routine

While children are at school they follow a set routine. This routine allows them to know what to expect next and helps to reduce the anxiety of worrying about the unknown. In these very uncertain times, children need to have some idea of what to expect each day. Consider working as a family to create a set daily routine that includes all sorts of activities with both structured and unstructured time built in. Below is a sample as well as a blank page you could print and use for your family.
