Maine’s University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research, and Service (UCEDD)
Dealing with COVID-19 and the societal response is extremely challenging. People with disabilities and the people who support them share these challenges—and then some. As the parent of a young adult with a disability, I know this very well. There are challenges about right to treatment, how to maintain social connections while isolating, how to learn remotely, how to communicate about medical issues, and so much more. As Maine’s University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD), the UMaine Center for Community Inclusion and Disability Studies is pleased to share COVID-19 and Disability Resources to help everyone in the disability community cope more effectively. To help you find what you need fast and easy, we’ve broken out resources into categories: Early Childhood; School-Age; Adulthood; Mental Health; Professionals, Providers, and Direct Support Professionals; and Other Collections of COVID-19 Resources.
