Beating the Virus: free downloadable picture story

Beyond Words is developing a short wordless picture story about Coronavirus, freely available for download.

The story will help people to understand what to do if you have Coronavirus and how to keep yourself and those who you care about safe. It also shows how to safely help others who may be self-isolating. Supplementary text at the end of the story gives information on where people can seek help if they are unwell and signposts to other useful resources.

The story has been designed to prompt conversations with people with learning disabilities about the virus, talk about their fears and reassure them.

The pictures are currently in black and white, but we wanted to make them available now to anyone who is in urgent need. We’ll be updating the resource with colour pictures as our artist, Lucy, finishes them.

You can download the resource, here:

Thanks everyone - and stay safe!
