Covid-19: Therapy & Activities at Home for Children with Autism & Sensory Processing Disorder

Message from Harkla CEO

Hey there,

I know this is a weird time for everyone. Whether you're a parent, educator, therapist, or person with special needs, these disruptions to our usual routines can be tough. For many of us, our routines are extremely important for growth, development, and mental health.

Here at Harkla, we want to make this disruption to your life easier. While we can’t reopen the schools or give your child the in-person therapy they may need, we hope our resources below are able to fill some of the void left by our closed schools and therapies.
