Emotional Support for Children
Mrs Latham, our Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) has curated a number of resources which may help you in supporting your child's emotional well being at home.
The ELSA Support Website here has a section about the coronavirus with numerous, free resources that parents might find helpful.
At the bottom of this page you will find a therapeutic story which might be helpful for families to help children to understand the current situation. At the beginning, there are some very useful notes for the adult telling the story. The story is aimed at younger children but older siblings might like to take on the storytelling role and also benefit as a result of this.
Finally, for parents and carers struggling with work, home schooling and childcare, we wanted to share this article entitled 'Play is the Therapy We All Need Right Now'. I hope you find it helpful.
