Resources from Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI):

  1. Social Narratives in Response to COVID-19  To help people with disabilities and those that support them, the OCALI Autism Center has created some social narratives to use at home during the COVID-19 crisis. Social narratives teach the individual appropriate social practices that can also help regulate behavior. Several examples have been provided to help families during the pandemic.

OCALI  FaceBook Live: 4 minutes at 4:00pm  Look for daily posts on Facebook on a variety of topics across the various OCALI centers.  Topics will include accessibility, special interests, self-regulation, activities to keep busy and have fun, and many, many more.   Live chat will occur if participants have questions during the broadcast.
