Here’s a piece of news we can discuss with AAC users:
The fabulous job that doctors and healthcare workers are doing world over in the fight against COVID 19.
- Start by talking to them about how Coronavirus is making many people sick (Make sure not to overwhelm them by giving too many details)
- Reassure them that there is no need to worry as long as we stay indoors
- Ask them – If everyone is staying home, who’s taking care of sick people?
- Time to explain the selfless work of doctors and medical professionals
- About how they are leaving their homes to care for others -> This can lead to a conversation about empathy and the value of caring for others
- Tell them how sick people become ok because of them -> Help them see the rewards of empathy and hard work
- Encourage them to express gratitude for the doctors -> Help them appreciate the efforts of people around them such as family members and friends too.
- Lead by example by saluting the work of the amazing medical professionals -> Demonstrate your appreciation by applauding or saluting the healthcare workers. Children may find it easier to follow if they saw you doing it.
