Families are facing unprecedented challenges in the wake of shelter-in-place guidelines. As teachers rally to support caregivers for in-home learning, parents also face the task of setting up homes and schedules to manage students’ educational needs. This can be much more complicated when a child has an Individual Education Program (IEP) or 504 Plan. School districts are still in the process of learning how these services will be delivered in the home setting, so students may not currently be receiving related services: speech, OT, PT and psychological supports.
The Special Needs Resource Foundation of San Diego is here to help. Below are resources organized by need.
Adaptive Augmentative Communication (AAC)
Audio Books for Kids
Blindness/Visual Impairment Learning Supports
Home Schooling–Special Education Specific
Mental Health/Behavioral Support
