Children and COVID-19

I want to post a couple of things about children and the COVID-19 pandemic. How to talk to kids and questions that kids might have. Its scary right now for anyone but especially for kids and kids with disabilities. These are all in the form of resources that I hope will in some small way help you, your family and especially your children about these times.
