The Coronavirus Pandemic is a difficult topic for parents to explain to any child, perhaps even more so when the child has Autism Spectrum Disorder or other special needs. Many of these children process information in a concrete manner, prefer established routines, and need support to understand and interpret emotions. This free resource, I Have a Question about Coronavirus, is a straightforward guide that takes these considerations into account and seeks to cover the wide range of questions that emerge as children aged 5 - 11 (and adults) grapple with COVID-19 and the ongoing global emergency.
