The impact of COVID-19 on children and learning has been profound. It has been even more significant for children with special needs and learning disabilities. At Family Hope Foundation, we’ve made some adjustments and are providing further resources to support vulnerable children and their families during the coronavirus pandemic.
We have adapted to connect families with teletherapy where appropriate. This is an invaluable option for families who are not comfortable with in-person therapy at this time or who have a child who is medically fragile. We are hearing about many positive outcomes from families and our network of providers. Families will work directly with their provider to determine if teletherapy is the best option for their child.
On our Events page, we’ve gathered a list of education resources for those doing virtual learning or homeschooling at this time. (If you know of additional resources we should add to this page, please contact us!)
The impact of lost access to additional therapy in school settings this year has created a deficit in learning that, for many children, requires intensive intervention. More families are turning to Family Hope Foundation for support and resources, and we are working hard to obtain additional funding to meet families’ needs. As a non-profit organization, we depend on the generosity of our community to fulfill those requests. Please consider partnering with Family Hope Foundation to support the children and families we serve by making a donation here.
