The next few weeks (and possibly months) will be a particularly
difficult time for children and families, whilst schools are closed
and we are advised to self-isolate or socially distance ourselves
from our friends and family. Our normal structure and routine
will be out of the window. This information pack aims to support
parents of children with an ASD or LD during this tricky time and
will hopefully make things a little more manageable.

Twinkl creates digital educational materials that can be used by anyone who has access to the internet, anywhere. We recognise that our digital resources could help schools and families in the event of school closures, as they can be shared, downloaded and printed by teachers and parents to help children continue learning at home.

In the event of school closures, Twinkl is offering every teacher in the UK access to all of our resources for one month (a One Month Ultimate Membership), free of charge. We're also offering every parent/carer of children at closed schools this same level of access so that they can find and use resources from home. Please feel free to share this with your school community and wider network.
