Leveraging Findings from OST Research and Practice to Lessen COVID-19 Learning Gaps

This issue brief explores how COVID-related school closures are likely to effect children’s academic progress, access to resources, and overall health and wellbeing and how systemic inequities exacerbate the impact for some groups. It then offers evidence-based recommendations for supporting children holistically by: (1) providing structure, (2) focusing on social-emotional learning, and (3) prioritizing health, wellness, and safety. This resource supports the COVID-19 response.
