Conversation prompts about loss, grief, and more practical things, such as social distancing at funerals in the context of COVID-19 outbreak. The resource explains how to run an online meeting for people with learning disabilities and how to talk about death. It features a set of ten pictures that can be used as prompts to help people with learning disabilities talk about the impact of coronavirus on their lives, and especially the impact of people dying from coronavirus. For each picture, there are conversation prompts to do with the picture, followed by conversation prompts that help people relate the picture to their own lives. The pictures can be used in online meetings with people with learning disabilities or when meeting face-to-face with one person or a group. (Edited publisher abstract)
