United Response have created a free resource for families and staff called Stay Inside: Be Inspired.
The world has changed dramatically as a result of the Covid-19 crisis – many of the places we visit, where we work and socialise, are closed or have restricted access and we are required to self-isolate or socially distance ourselves from our friends and family.
We’re all having to make changes to the way we live together at home and in communities, to combat the virus.
Changing our lives in this way is difficult for all of us and there is plenty of general advice out there about how to adapt and cope at this time. However, it can be particularly difficult for children and adults with learning disabilities and/or autism.
These resources focus on the use of Active Support to enable families and support staff to develop the skills needed to support people with learning disabilities and/or autism in staying active and trying new things and creating structure and routine.
This easy to read booklet explains what Active Support is, why it is important, what it looks like in practice and how it can be used by families and support staff now and in the future.
