We are all settling into remote learning and the therapies for our kids, and it may present some challenges along with the stay at home order.

The best plan that your teachers may have come up with on short notice, may not be the best plan for your child. That is okay. If frustration arises for your child or you, check in with your child’s teacher or therapist. In the meantime, read a book with your child. Take a walk with your child. Cook something. Create something. These are all learning activities.

Most students will spend the remainder of the year in remote learning, trying to do academic work at home. This is an unexpected stress for everyone. We have to remember to keep our priorities straight. And the priorities are different from what you may be thinking.
