Support & resources for families from CEAT

An update and some resources from Janet Threader, the Family Liaison Officer for Cheshire East Autism Team 🙂

Hi all,

During these unprecedented and challenging times I just wanted to reassure you that the Cheshire East Autism Team are still here to support parents and carers. I know that many of you will have struggled with the decision of whether or not to send you child into school but can I please reassure you that there is no right or wrong answer you can only do what’s best for you and your family. Whatever you decided it can feel quite overwhelming, I have personally experienced this over the last few days but we will try and do what we can to support you now and in the coming weeks/months.

You have probably have been ‘flooded’ with resources and advice over the last few days and I don’t want to put any additional pressure on you but I felt it was important to send you some ideas and resources especially for those who are keeping their children at home. I intentionally didn’t say ‘educating’ at home as most of us are not teachers we are just doing  the best we can.

Here are some resources that you may find useful:
Tips for home

Support information for parents of children with additional needs.

“Why do I have to?” template, plus example

What is a social story?

NW SEND ADVICE

The majority of these things relate to not only  ASC children but would be useful for any child with additional needs; in fact I feel that any child would benefit from these at the moment.

We have lots of additional resources on our website which we will be continuously adding to over the next few days and coming weeks.  Below is the website address but you can also search on line for Cheshire East Autism Team.
