Staying Safe – Autism Advisory and Intervention Service

AAIS Post-Primary Home Pack

Information for Parents 

Created by the Education Authority Autism Advisory and Intervention Service (AAIS) This online pack aims to address some of the concerns our young people may have at this challenging time during school closures and with the anxiety associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The pack is designed as a pdf document with hyperlinks to videos and websites and is arranged into the following chapters: –

Chapter 1 – Understanding Novel Coronavirus and COVID-19

Chapter 2 – Establishing a positive daily routine

Chapter 3 – Accessing Remote Learning

Chapter 4 – Looking after your emotional well-being

The pack is written specifically for our young people to read but you may wish to read it first and decide what content is most appropriate to share. AAIS respect your decision as the parent and know that you know your child best! We have signposted to some websites and apps which we have found useful but there are so many more online……this is only the tip of the iceberg. We hope you find this AAIS Post-Primary Home Pack useful and, most of all, we hope you and your family stay safe!
