About this Resource
A nasal swab is a test that’s gone from something not likely to happen to something very likely to happen during the time of COVID. Use this Game Plan and check out our blog to help create comfort and relieve pain for little (and big!) people. They can also use the interactive tech we like to call Spud to make a plan for themselves!
How to use this
Have the child fill this out before they have to go for a swab. It helps them manage their own feelings and anxiety by creating concrete ways to cope and feel more comfortable and in control.
Who is this for
