It has been several weeks now since everyone’s lives were turned upside down. None of us were prepared for the rapid changes that took place with the closing of schools, daycares, preschools, recreation centers, and the cancellation of community classes and programs. We’ve been cut off from family and friends, many of whom were a part of our support system.

With the cancellation of so many aspects of our world such as work, travel and school, our lives are now centered on being at home. Families are together all day long; outside supports have disappeared. No visitors can come to the house. The move to online learning has not been completely successful for some people because they find the online format overwhelming and too fast paced. Parents are worried about skill regression or how to cope as behaviors escalate in isolation.
