At Telethon Kids Institute, our researchers have spent nearly 30 years learning how to keep kids and families safe and well. While COVID-19 is new and frightening, these resources are designed to help families tackle the challenges this virus has created for us.

Updated regularly, our resources will offer advice from our scientists for staying physically and mentally healthy during COVID-19, insights for kids dealing with unique health challenges, cyber safety guidance for parents as our kids spend more time online, and tips, activities and community engagement news for the whole family.
