Dear Colleague,

I am pleased to email you the information below from the American Academy of Developmental Medicine and Dentistry (AADMD).   The AADMD has just launched a new Coronavirus Center to share resources and knowledge on the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).

By clicking below, you will see very helpful information from the AADMD, including a  webinar taking place today, Friday, March 27, 2020, at 1:00 pm. The webinar is titled, Coronavirus and the Role of the DSP.

This is one of many emails that The Arc of New Jersey is distributing in an effort to help individuals with I/DD, their families, and staff to be safe and healthy throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. To see other emails that The Arc of New Jersey has distributed on this topic, please go to .

CARING FOR PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS HAS UNIQUE CHALLENGES — especially, during a pandemic. AADMD is here to answer your IDD (Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities) questions.

- How do I prepare for COVID-19 in the disability community?

- How do I practice social distancing with someone with IDD?

- When do I wear a surgical mask? N95? Or Face shield?

- What’s my role as the DSP (Direct Support Professional)?

- Should I ask about the Pneumonia vaccine for my patient?
