COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Resources
COVID-19: Special action must be taken to protect persons who have IDD. Please see The Arc of Mass COVID-19 Updates for information on this urgent need. Most advocacy organizations who serve individuals with IDD and their families are also providing COVID-19 response tabs on their websites. Checking your state’s Dept of Developmental Disabilities will provide additional guidance. Below please find a short list of select resources and articles to view. Besides families who are isolating at home (and providing therapies and home schooling) it bears mentioning that there are dedicated staff in residences who continue to support vulnerable persons with IDD, who currently do not have the support of day programs or other therapeutic activities.
