As many of you will know, April is Autism Awareness Month, but this year it is very different.
We are well aware of the disruption Coronoavirus has caused to our daily lives. This crisis is also having a profound effect on children and young people with autism and their families. Many, already deeply affected by isolation, anxiety and financial hardship, will struggle to cope with what the coming months may bring.
We've developed a series of resources for families and autistic young people to help you manage anxiety and adjust to self-isolation at this challenging and uncertain time.

I'd love to hear what our Talk about Autism community members are thinking, feeling and experiencing during this very unusual time. How are you coping? Do you have any tips that would be useful to other community members? Are you feeling frustrated and want to talk to like-minded people?
Whatever it is, feel free to contribute to this thread or start your own.
Best wishes and stay safe
