Tony The Turtle Stays at Home

Thank you to Valerie Sheehan creator of the Tony the Turtle book series – Valerie has shared with us a free download to help parents explain the current world crisis to younger children.
‘Tony Stays at Home’ is a free PDF to help parents explain to their child, through the use of storytelling and illustration about the current reasons for social distancing and isolation practices, at this most unusual time in our lives.
Valerie is a professionally trained ASD tutor with 15 years of experience working with families and kids on the autistic spectrum. She is passionate about providing tools and educational resources for parents, carers, and teachers – Tony The Turtle book series is developed to help empower parents/teachers to manage everyday activities that a child may find challenging and overwhelming.
