School Closure and Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

During this time of unprecedented public health crisis the Government has made the decision to close schools. We can all see how this will help to fight the virus, but it does leave you as parents in a bit of a difficult situation. What can you do to support your young people with autism, preserve some of your sanity and maybe manage to do a bit of your own work at the same time?

This help sheet is designed to help you, as a parent, to cope with the current situation, and to be able to manage your child’s anxiety, maybe even giving you ways to enable them to do some constructive activities!
