We have exciting news!!
Our services are
expanding to help
parents during this
time of home-quarantine.
The New Normal:
The rapid closure of schools, childcare programs, afterschool activities, and basically all aspects of community life outside the home and immediate family due to COVID-19 has been hard on everyone. It’s been tough on adults, who have become their child’s parent, teacher, coach, chef, housekeeper and therapist all day, every day. Recently my brother said to me, “I don’t know how to do this. I didn’t go to school to become a teacher.” But, as hard as it has been on adults, I’m going to say it’s even more challenging for kids.
Children have fewer coping skills, and with limited life experiences to guide them, this situation is just plain difficult. They are without the routines and structures in their lives that typically support them, and let’s face it, watching Zoom videos is not how children learn best. All of this change and disruption can lead to some significant behavior changes in kids, which can be stressful and confusing to parents. So,
Kids Included Together (KIT) is here to help!
Inclusion Moves From The Class To The Living Room:
KIT has spent more than two decades helping teachers and childcare providers support the needs of kids of all abilities in group activities. Now that inclusion has moved from the classroom to the living room, we are expanding our support to parents and guardians. We could not be more excited to offer a FREE KIT At-Home Helpline from now until June 30th.
