The next few weeks (and possibly months) will be a particularly difficult time for children and families, whilst schools are closed and we are advised to self-isolate or socially distance ourselves from our friends and family. Our normal structure and routine will be out of the window. This information pack aims to support parents of children with an ASD or LD during this tricky time and will hopefully make things a little more manageable. This Booklet was put together by colleagues in Community Family Psychology, Neurodevelopmental Team and Children’s Occupational Therapy (20th March 2020)
