COVID-Care for Families
Supporting parents of children with disability during Covid-19. Strategies for families.

About our COVID-Care for Families webinar:

Learning that your child has a disability affects everyone in a family and the families network of friends. The added stress during these unprecedented times of the Covid -19 pandemic can completely take away what parents and carers had planned for in 2020 or 2021 for their child for themselves and for their family.

It’s probably not a surprise that their role as parent/ caregiver has changed even further during this time. Parents and Carers will go through many positive and negative experiences during this time. They

• May feel more burden with everyday responsibility of caring for their child with disability/ delay
• May feel pressure to become an expert and learn everything overnight.
• May worry about their child and family’s future.
• May have difficulty finding balance and time to manage household tasks, other children, daily activities, etc.
• May be less inclined to share feelings.
• May become stressed about the family’s finances and the unknowns of the situation.
• May develop other problems such as stress and anxiety that can affect work life.
• This webinar will present an opportunity to discuss some of the challenges and present some strategies that you may encourage families to adopt as a way of looking after themselves in these uncertain times.

Webinar Panel:

This webinar will be facilitated by Reimagine Australia’s Anna McCracken and will feature expertise and insights from our two panelists, Dr Anoo Bhopti and Lynne Wood.
