I wish that your loved ones whose routines have been drastically changed find a structure that works for them during this difficult transition.
I wish that you and your family stay safe.
I wish you find a daily schedule that will work well for your loved ones.
I wish we flatten the curve.
I wish all of you who have postponed/cancelled your events will still find ways to interact with your community virtually. We all need a friend right now. We’re in this together.
I wish all our families think about their mental health. Get in time for exercise and if you are struggling, know your feelings are valid and talk it out with someone.
I wish you know that, for those who have children, that there will be a day in the future that they will be going back to school.
But most of all I wish you all happiness during these uncertain times.
Your friend, Kerry
Professional speaker & autism self-advocate
Update: Some of you have asked how I’m doing with all this and how my family talked to me about this topic. You can read about how the Coronavirus has impacted me here. My routine has been flipped (like many of us) as most of my speaking engagements have been cancelled/postponed till a later date. Trying to make the most of it while educating our community about the importance of technology right now to keep our events going (Webinars, virtual presentations via Zoom, etc.)
Have me give a virtual presentation to your students by contacting me here.
Have me give a professional development virtual presentation for your teachers by contacting me here.
