Support for Families of Pre-School and School Age Children

During this challenging time, our homes have become more than just a home. It’s an office, a classroom, a playground, and a safe haven for our families. To better support you through this time, AG Bell has gathered valuable resources to keep your family learning, playing and communicating at home. 

Our team will continue to update this page as we navigate this ever-evolving situation. Connect with us on social media to let us know which resources you liked the best and what else you would like to see from AG Bell during this time.

Speaking from The Volta BureaU

The turn of events over the past week or so have shown us that we need to be mindful of our friends, family and community. We need to be careful of our own health and to be patient and understanding with people who are worried about what this global pandemic may mean to them.


AG Bell Academy COVID-19 Response

The AG Bell Academy is receiving a higher volume of communication than usual due to cancellation of some LSLS-approved continuing education offerings and questions related to LSLS Certification Exam test centers around the globe secondary to the COVID-19 pandemic.
