KIDS HUBS go online
The Hertfordshire KIDS HUBs is providing ‘business as usual’ in different ways during the Covid 19 restrictions. For example, new referrals and one to one support, with subjects ranging from sleep support to starting a new EHCP application and completing benefit forms is now happening over the phone and via video call when possible. The private facebook group is a useful place for parents to find tips and ideas to keep kids busy and help families cope with the current situation as well as keep in touch with other parents. Information about domestic violence and wellbeing support are examples.
Although there are no stay and play sessions, if parents/carers need any specialist equipment to help them cope in these difficult times they can contact KIDS HUBS who will do their best to make some reasonable arrangements for them to safely pick up the items.
KIDS HUBS are also taking practical steps to support families help their children adapt to new and unfamiliar routines by printing and posting resources for families to create visual timetables, social stories, now and next boards, pictures and symbols, to help families who can’t print things at home.
