Teaching children to wear a mask

From Child Neurology Foundation

"As we enter a new normal with many parts of society re-opening, renewed attention is turning to the public use of masks.  A growing number of U.S. states have now mandated the use of masks and face coverings in some public settings and businesses.

For some children, wearing a mask and being around others using face coverings can be a challenge. We brought together two experts from different vantage points to discuss some of the ways to teach a child to be comfortable with masks.

Kristina Gerencser is the program manager of the Language and Learning Clinic with the Marcus Autism Center and Gabi Connecker is a parent and co-founder of Wishes for Elliott.

Listen to some of their tips and advice in the video below or find the webinar, and other COVID-19 resources, on our website.

“Learning how to wear a mask is going to be a critical component for everyone.” —  Kristina Gerencser, with the Marcus Autism Center.  "
