Supporting Students Who Receive Early Childhood Special Education Services during COVID19


The COVID19 national crisis has created conditions in our educational system that no one could have planned for or predicted. Parents are managing their own work from home arrangements, maintaining work schedules out of the home and supporting their own children’s learning while they are out of school. Teachers and school district administrators are all working hard to support children and families during this crisis.

In an effort to share the best available information, the Virginia Department of Education and the Training and Technical Assistance Centers have developed a list of curated resources covering a variety of areas germane to young children with disabilities and their families. The lists are not exhaustive but do provide a set of resources specifically selected to assist parents, teachers, and administrators who support a young child with a disability.  Teachers and administrators may want to utilize or highlight selected resources for a parent to support their child during this time.
