Individuals with Developmental Disabilities (DD) are one of the most vulnerable populations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Like the general population, the DD population has experienced upheaval amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The DD community has been presented with a unique set of challenges that impact their physical, psychological, and social wellbeing. Although there are many challenges, there have also been benefits for this group. This training will explore the early research of both the negative and positive impacts on the DD population, practical support strategies, and resources. This training will also offer a firsthand perspective from a remarkable young woman on the Autism Spectrum named Grace. She is a Good Life Ambassador for the Cuyahoga Board of Developmental Disabilities and currently attending Cleveland State University in pursuit of a major in psychology and a minor in neuroscience.
