Though your child hasn’t gotten much peer contact this year, you can help offset isolation so they can push through.
Play with them!
Try and set aside time daily to give them some practice with their social skills. Dress-up, coloring, and fort building all count.
Silliness is a key part of kids’ friendships. Toys, books, and shows that make your child crack up can help fill that gap.
Rethink virtual playdates.
Your kids are probably tired of Zoom. There are ways to make virtual visits more creative. Airbnb Online Experiences let kids connect with friends to meet penguins, learn magic, or go on an underwater shark adventure. Buddies can also make slime with the Sloomoo Institute, have fun with STEM through Tinkergarten or try out a variety of virtual classes through ActivityHero.
Schedule safe, in-person fun.
Sometimes just seeing a friend or other kids can be beneficial. Take your child on a walk or bike ride with a friend while practicing social distancing. If supervised, your child can have some safe face time with a friend.

Upcoming SEPAC Meeting
Join SEPAC for our virtual February 23rd meeting — all about preparing for life in and after high school for students with IEPs! No matter what age your student is, this will be helpful and important information for planning for the future.
When: February 23 7-8:30pm
7-7:30 pm – Leslie Wallace and Kate Stanton Paule, co-directors of the Montclair High School’s Community Based Transition program, will talk about the process of transition planning (beginning for all students with IEPs at age 14), what transition looks like at MHS, and important things for parents and students of any age to think about while preparing for life in and outside of high school.
7:30-8 pm – Carolyn Corbran is the director of disability support services at Seton Hall University (and a parent of a Kindergarten student at Nishuane) and has been supporting students with accommodation needs in higher education for almost 11 years. She will talk about identifying differences between accommodations in K-12 and college environments, as well as how to prepare students early for how to advocate for their accommodation needs when they get to college to help them be as successful as possible. She will also address common pitfalls first-year college students experience when learning to advocate for and use accommodations and how parents can help support their children’s accommodation needs in an environment where staff doesn’t communicate with caregivers in the same ways they have from K-12.
8-8:30 pm Q&A period
Time: Feb 23, 2021, 07:00 PM Eastern Time
