Resources > COVID-19 Information

In times of trouble and anxiety, we turn to resources to help manage our needs and expectations. During the COVID-19 outbreak, many resources have been made available, but it's hard to find information by, for, and about people with disabilities including intellectual and developmental disabilities and autism. The Institute has created this list of topics and resources, many written by, for, and about persons with disabilities.

Please keep in mind we are just learning about this new virus. We learn something new every day. Always get the facts from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Pennsylvania, county, and other government resources such as the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP). We will keep updating this site.
