Helping children understand


Explaining to children what is happening right now can be difficult. Some of these free resources may be helpful as you talk to your children.

You can find a lovely free story that helps explain social distancing to young children here.

Prof. Sheila Hollins has produced this book for people with Learning Disabilities or for those who find pictures easier to understand to explain coronavirus. The book also includes a detailed list of further resources that may help with dealing with coronavirus and the challenges associated with this such as bereavement, mental health and social distancing.
