A Closer Look: COVID-19 Accessible Materials for People with Disabilities Project

This archived webinar highlighted a COVID-19 Accessible Materials Project, creating accessible materials and resources from existing CDC COVID-19 guidance. The specific targeted disability audiences identified as needing these resources are individuals who are blind and/or have low vision and need braille, individuals with intellectual and cognitive disabilities needing easy to read language, and individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing and need ASL. Additionally, resources and helpful guidance has been created for individuals living with mobility disabilities, their caregivers, and families. Presenters shared information about this project including statistics on individuals living with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic, history of the project, and real-time resources as we collectively work to distribute this vital health information to those who need it most.
