Earlier this year, we sat down with different families from across Australia to gain an insight into their experience with COVID-19 and how the lock downs have affected their young person on the autism spectrum.

As students across Australia make the shift from learning at school to learning from home, we understand how challenging the disruption can be for all children and the need to consider the best ways to support them during this period of uncertainty.

Over the next few weeks, Positive Partnerships will be sharing a series of videos we have created with families who will be sharing their insights and reflections on how they have been able to navigate COVID-19 during these uncertain times.
