How to explain coronavirus to people with learning difficulties

Coronavirus for people with learning difficulties

Inspired by Alex Kelly, a well-documented Speech & Language Therapist specialising in working with people with learning difficulties, we have produced a resource to help our staff and clients explain coronavirus to individuals with learning difficulties.

This resource will help explain why their accommodation may be in a state of lock down, visits from family or friends may be limited, extra measures are in place to maintain personal hygiene and social distancing. In these times of uncertainty, it's important that we relay this information in an appropriate way to help the people in our care understand and not feel panicked.

Feel free to download here and print out this resource and use as you see fit.
