Lucena Clinic Services
All the staff in Lucena are conscious of the difficult time young people and their families are having with the COVID-19 Emergency. Life as we know it has changed dramatically within the last 4 weeks. The face-to-face and group supports that we use are not available to you. We are providing phone and online support. Research supports the use of these methods when attendance at a service is not possible but we know it is not a replacement for meeting you.
In response to this gap we have launched this new section of our website with resources for young people of different age brackets and parents. We have checked all the information and regard it as reliable at the time of uploading. The information will be added to over the course of the Emergency, so please do check back regularly.
We will get through this together and normal service will resume. We would encourage you to adhere to the government guidelines, to ensure that you and your family keep safe. Until then, we hope that you keep safe and well.
Keep in touch and use the supports available to you.
The Lucena Clinic Team
The restrictions in place due to Covid-19 require us all to spend more time at home.
The change in routine, increased time indoors and worry about our own and our family’s health is likely to be making us feel more stressed or strained than usual. Children who have sensory processing difficulties may be even more sensitive to this added stress and may be struggling to regulate their reactions to sensation, attention and emotions during this time.
The first video is on Wellbeing during COVID-19. It will,hopefully, support teenages and younger children. We also have a 4-part parent workshop which explains how our sensory system helps us regulate our attention, behaviour and emotions and the impact of stress on this process. Practical ideas for sensory strategies are also given.
