Help support the diverse needs of children, women and girls with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic
Therapy Support for Children with Disabilities in Informal Settlements Amidst Covid-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has dealt a great blow to therapy services for children with various diabilities. Drastic changes have had to be embraced by practitioners to comply with government guidelines such as social distancing among others. The situation has posed a threat to the well-being of children with disabilities and those in low income communities have particularly been hard-hit. In light of the latter, there is a growing concern on accessibility of therapy services especially for children living in informal settlements. The webinar will explore therapy support for children with disabilities in low income communities.
