Parents and family members of individuals of all ages diagnosed with autism face unprecedented challenges during the COVID-19 restrictions of social distancing. Individuals with autism depend on a team of professionals, teachers and family members to support their daily learning, behavioral, sensory and communication difficulties. With “stay at home” orders, schools and businesses closed, routines and structure has been disrupted on top of mounting anxiety and emotional distress.
