Welcome. Welcome to this April edition of SEND News, featuring the stories and updates from our services and partners on how they continue to support families of children/young people with special educational needs or disabilities in times when they cant meet with them.

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.

Whilst coronavirus is infectious to children it is rarely serious. If your child is unwell it isWhilst coronavirus is infectious to children it is rarely serious. If your child is unwell it islikely to be a non-coronavirus illness, rather than coronavirus itself.

Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home duringthis period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured.Remember that NHS 111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same safe care thatthey have always done. Here is some advice to help:

North Hertfordshire District Council (NHDC) has tailored its Healthy Hub service to provide residents with information, advice and support in response to the Cor onavirus (COVID - 19) pandemic.

This will include how to:

• stay mentally well and physically active whilst staying at home
• access essential items such as food and medication
• receive financial support
• entertain and engage children
• stay socially connected
• volunteer your help

Residents can contact the Healthy Hub by calling the hotline on 01462 474 111 which is open from Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm. Alternatively, send an email to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or visit the website: www.healthyhubnorthherts.co.uk

Cllr Judi Billing, NHDC’s Executive Member for Community Engagement said: “It’s a really worrying time for everyone, so please remember that if you need help, you are not alone. The knowledgeable Healthy Hub team can offer tips and advice about how to cope , direct you towards any support you may need and let you know how you can volunteer to help others, so do get in touch with them and they will be very happy to help”.

Additional information:

• Please note residents who have a medical condition which makes them extremely vulnerable to coronavirus (COVID-19) will have received a letter from the NHS. This will entitle them to accessing support services from Government. These individuals will be requir ed to register and tell Government whether they need support. Further information can be found here www.gov.uk/coronavirus-extremely-vulnerable
• Residents not deemed extremely vulnerable but who are self-isolating and in need of support from volunteers can visit www.hertshelp.net , email info@ hertshelp.net or call HertsHelp on 0300 123 4044.
• If you would like to help your community at this time, TeamHerts is leading the response across Hertfordshire and is in need of support from volunteers. Residents, services and community groups who would like to volunteer can visit www.thvolunteering.org.uk

Children may be experiencing a wide range of emotions during this transition, from fear and anxiety to excitement and enthusiasm. Even positive emotions can be unsettling to children.

Suggestions in the following flyer are designed to make the transition as smooth as possible for everyone.
