Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on People with Disabilities (ACL)
The Administration for Community Living’s (ACL) National Institute of Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) has released a report, Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on People with Disabilities (PDF) that highlights key research findings on the impact of the pandemic on people with disabilities.
The report includes findings from studies focusing on specific groups that were particularly hard hit, such as people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, people from marginalized communities, and people with mental health disorders. The report also highlights findings and resources in specific areas of community engagement and participation, rural communities, education services, telehealth, and employment and return-to-work accommodations. Finally, the report identifies research gaps and opportunities for further research.
