Coping During COVID-19 | Support Sessions

Because of our unique role in children’s education, we would like to support the thousands of children with new anxieties over being quarantined. We feel a responsibility to do what we can to assist schools, therapists and students with this transition to online learning and seclusion.

As the number of homebound students grows exponentially every day, we want to ensure that
students remain engaged and healthy. Our therapists will be providing complimentary
“Support Sessions” to the country’s youth.

These ½ hour Support Sessions will be held daily through June. They will range in age formats to discuss specific concerns. The group sessions will focus on keeping the students calm and engaged while homebound due to the current situation.
