This year 2020 has been a particularly interesting one with one #Crisis after the other. Just as #COVID19 continues to terrorize the hearts and minds of everyone across the world, here, at home in California, we are faced with other #Naturaldisaster phenomena - #Heatwaves, #Thunderstorms, #Lightning that went on for hours on end and now, the #Wildfires !! Everyone is seeking refuge indoors, further isolation is rampant especially for our #developmentallydifferent individuals!
At PRAGNYA, we doubled our connections experiences to at least meet 4 to 5 times a week, so everyone in the family - neurodiverse and their Neurotypical allies stay in touch and connected. From #VirtualSocials, to #ConnectCalls, to #SkillsSessions to #MYPACK (my Pragnya Ally Circle of Kindness) physically distancing activities to #MusicWorkshops, to #ParentConnects - we took the #connecting to a whole new level. Even those children like my child, who does NOT engage on a screen based platform, or even facetime calls or video calls for anything else, has somehow managed to find her sweet spot in these sessions. What was it that was getting her to participate in these sessions, and her neurodiverse peers, who otherwise have a hard time connecting online with someone else ? The answer became evident this past week.
