COVID-19 Special Collection

Many members of the NIDILRR grantee community have responded to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) by publishing, presenting, or curating resources to support the continued independence and participation of people with disabilities and their families, and the professionals who work with them. We are actively collecting these resources as they are published. This list is growing, so check back regularly. The newest items are featured first, followed by the full collection in a sortable table. Are you a NIDILRR grantee who has published a COVID resource? Submit it for the collection!
