The Coronavirus Pandemic has provided many new and unexpected challenges for everyone. Whether you are a young mother, a parent working from home, or grandparent used to helping with the kids, we’ve all had to adapt to new modes of coping in a very short span of time. Being in a lockdown situation creates new challenges, especially for those caring for young children, children with developmental delays, and those with special needs. Here are a few tips for staying motivated and supportive in the age of COVID-19.
As an organization, our goal is to bring Early Intervention services to families throughout our service area, regardless of race, religion, or socioeconomic status.
