This session will discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, how agencies and health centers faced the challenges on their own front lines, and how healthcare was provided and ensured throughout the pandemic and will be into the future. Scott Landes, a researcher from Syracuse University, will discuss results from data analysis of COVID-19 outcomes among adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including data provided by CP State Affiliates and other agencies across New York. Dr. Vincent Siasoco and Dr. James Powell will discuss the issues they face and the opportunities that arose that led to the implementation of quality systems and programs from a distance to keep a very vulnerable population safe.
