As they juggle new demands arising from the pandemic on top of their everyday responsibilities, COVID-19 has been a trying time for many caregivers for persons with special needs. At the peak of the Circuit Breaker, where schools and community services were closed and stay-at-home restrictions were mandated, caregivers often find themselves experiencing a heightened level of stress as they lack avenues for respite and alternative care.

In this panel conversation, we will better understand the impacts of COVID-19 on caregivers for persons with special needs, and share practical ways to mitigate caregivers’ strain. We will also be sharing tips on what caregivers can do to safeguard their own mental well-being.

Ordinary Stories in an Extraordinary World


This book tells the stories of a boy with autism living in a world he views in his own, special way. His take on the routines of daily life would seem, to most people, a plunge into an extraordinary world of the unexpected and inexplicable. As seen through his sister’s eyes, the stories chronicle his growing-up years, and his adventures and misadventures – the quirky, the funny and the downright miraculous. It is also a sharing of the little-known, yet engaging, stories of individuals with special needs and other unsung heroes: their families, teachers and doctors.
