    SNJ's Renata Blower & Tania Tirraoro in Conversation with Child & Adolescent Mental Health Counsellor, Angela Kelly. Angela is a parent of two children with autism and a qualified child and adolescent mental health counsellor. She's also Special Needs Jungle's Mental Health Editor. 

    We discuss at the issues sparked by the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown on the mental health of disabled children. Many children are experiencing increased anxiety and uncertainty about the future, while for others, not having to go to school during lockdown has taken away the very thing that caused their anxiety in the first place. 

    In this enlightening and engaging conversation, Angela, Renata and Tania answer some of the questions sent in by SNJ readers and discuss their own experiences during the crisis. 

    The episode is also available in vision on YouTube. Join in the conversation on our Special Needs Jungle Facebook Group, Let's Talk About SEND.

Brilliant to have such a helpful resource

The system makes many SEND parents feel like they are the first to ever experience their situation. The Special Needs Jungle team reassure us we are not alone. Having such knowledgeable and empathetic advocates is a lifeline for us. Thoroughly recommend.

So helpful

Great to see SNJ branching out to a new platform. Hopefully this means lots more parents of children with SEND will discover how helpful they are.
