Position Statement from BHISS as of 20-03-2020

Dear parent/carer,

We know that this is a difficult time for our ASC families. We will be in touch with schools next week to see how we can best assist them to provide emotional support and appropriate learning for their autistic pupils, whether learning at school or from home.

In the meantime, we have attached some useful resources to use with your child, if you wish, to help explain the corona virus and the various implications of this. Some resources will be better for younger children, and some more suitable for older children/teenagers, so please do have a look through and see if there is anything that may be helpful to you.

Our family support workers- Mandy and Sasha- are in the process of contacting families who we are actively working with. If you haven’t previously worked with our family support team, or haven’t done recently, but feel you would like some support via email or telephone, then please do get in touch by replying to this email and we will contact you as soon as possible.

With best wishes to you all,

Sadie and the Autism & Language team
