Here’s how the #YouMatter Organisation is helping SEN families during times of COVID-19!

Updated: Jun 10, 2020

Team #YouMatter kicked off their project with the assembling of Covid-19 care packages aimed at families with children with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities last week!

After speaking to numerous professionals in the SEN field, the YouMatter team, headed by Chloe Jazzy Lau, Aiswarya Rambhatla, Nicholas Tam, Adrian Wong and Jonty Francis, recognized the various challenges parents with SEN children face during quarantine: a lack of specialist support, few techniques to teach their children effectively, and the inability to keep their children occupied or focused while working from home. They came up with the idea of delivering educational and healthcare packages to support families and individuals with special needs or disabilities, providing much-needed PPEs to underprivileged families, along with materials to support their child's learning under quarantine.
