While everyone in our community has been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, the situation has been especially hard for parents of children with disabilities. Some of the common concerns we have heard from parents include:

  • My child is missing the structure of school and their normal routines.
  • Virtual learning has been difficult for my child, and I’m not sure how to talk to the school about accommodating my child’s needs.
  • My adult child usually goes to work or attends a day program, and now they are feeling bored and isolated.
  • My child is acting out, and I’m having a hard time managing these behaviors.
