Non-Magnetic Kit: Calendar Kit to Help Foster Kids Cope
Change is difficult for kids of all ages, but it's especially hard for kids in foster care, who are thrown into a totally new situation (often with very little warning).
Help foreshadow and create predictability for kids in foster care by providing them with the structure and visual cues they need to relieve their anxiety.
Our one-of-a-kind visual schedule for foster kids was co-created with Foster Parent Partner Laura and designed to help kids plan for everything from birth family visits to medical appointments. We've also included bonus content from Laura to help foster families implement the schedule and get the most out of it.
This low-cost kit is created for hospitals and nonprofit organizations and is available for purchase in bulk.
