No, this Buzz is not about twins. Rather, it’s a special double issue–2 Buzzes in 1.

This Buzz has the simplest of themes but a diversity of resources to support you in your work with schools, educators, and families of children with disabilities.

There’s so much going on! Information, news, and resources are flying off the shelves and buzzing around our heads.

This Buzz brings you news of several recent resources to support your Center’s work with families of young children with disabilities.
Keeping our wits about us is no laughing matter these days. Our own mental health and that of our children, students, and colleagues are priorities all too easily overlooked as we rush around with endless to-do lists. We’ve focused the resources in this Buzz on strategies for embedding mental health awareness and care at home, at school, and in the workplace.
This Buzz focuses primarily on recent FAQs and government funding sources available to guide how we return to school, reopen early childhood programs, provide child care, and undertake other child-benefiting endeavors.
