As families who have children with special needs, we are probably more prepared than many for these unpredictable times and social isolation. We realize you are probably overwhelmed with all the information about COVID-19, so we are providing some suggestions for what you can do immediately to be prepared for this and future emergencies.
Read our Spring Newsletter for links to fillable emergency care plans, tools for creating a care plan so others are ready to care for your child’s needs if you get sick, and ideas for making sure you have the goods and supplies you’ll need if something unexpected happens. Also see our new “Preparing for Emergencies” Fact Sheet for more ideas.
Taking some time now will decrease the stress of the unknown—so our children stay safe and we can be ready for future emergencies.
