The coronavirus—COVID-19 is stirring up conversation, and children with special needs are bound to have questions about what it is. Especially with the increasing number of school-closure announcements, and news of the outbreak dominating headlines and social-media platforms, children are likely to be exposed to loads of information and misinformation. They may react with emotions such as fear, worry, shock and grief. And if you have a child with special needs, he may respond in ways that are difficult to handle. And while we may not be able to shield our children from what is happening, there are plenty of ways to explain the coronavirus COVID-19 to your child with special needs without causing undue alarm.
