Family support is a large part of a special educator’s role, but the shift to online learning has made this incredibly difficult. This webinar will cover ways of supporting families during COVID 19 and with the shift to distance learning. We will share resources for conducting virtual home visits and discuss ways school staff can connect with families, assess their needs, connect them with resources, and support them in meeting their child’s’ needs at home.
