How are you?  

There are suddenly lots of changes in the world around us and we’ve got to suddenly live and work in a quite different way. Setting up new ways of doing things can be difficult and stressful. To help you have the most healthy mind and body over the coming weeks, remember to include the six things below in your days.

H

How are you? Take time to think about how you are feeling, talk to your family or friends about what is happening. If you prefer make a diary or book of drawings to show how you are feeling. Recognising your feelings helps them to feel more manageable.

E

Exercise – follow the government guidelines and what your family have decided. If you can, take a walk or sit outdoors each day. If you are isolated at home try something like dancing to music or find an online exercise class.

A

Academic Work – you have an incredible brain and your teachers have worked hard to organise work for you. Be fair to yourself and do the very best work you can.

L

Limit! – don’t watch too much news, and don’t spend too long online. If you limit these you are more likely to stay calm and healthier.

T

Timetable – make yourself a plan, include what time you get up, have breaks, do exercise, eat and drink, as well as what time you will be working.

H

Health – everybody’s health is really important. Keep washing your hands carefully, do not be tempted to go out and meet other people even if you feel well.  Stay inside if you or your family have any symptoms of the Coronavirus and always follow the government's  up-to-date advice.

Troo app

A new app that has been co-created with young people to help improve their wellbeing. Launched in Southwark and Lambeth, young people (12-19 years old) can talk to a chatbot ‘Troo’ about anything from self-esteem, body image and friendships to school, family and relationships. Although developed before COVID-19, the app has been updated to include a conversation about the virus that young people might find helpful. Troo is available as a free download from the Apple Store and Google Play.


Pandemics and coronavirus explained.

Here is a Social Story written by Carol Gray and designed for children with autism, all about the coronavirus and what is happening. Parents might find it useful to use with some children, in order to reassure them. View and download the pandemics and coronavirus presentation.


Autism Support Team

The Autism Support Team at Southwark Council will be operating a remote service during this current time of school closures. They can provide consultations to parents/carers, and educational staff via digital communication. This may be a scheduled telephone appointment, facetime appointment, email or text message. They will also operate a daily helpline during working hours should you wish to speak to a member of the team. Find out more.
