COVID-19 Outcomes Among People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
This webinar is jointly sponsored by AAIDD and AAIDD's Research Interest Network

Presenters:
Scott D. Landes, Syracuse University, Syracuse
Katherine E. McDonald, Syracuse University

People with intellectual and developmental disabilities, a large and heterogeneous health disparities population, may have risk of more severe COVID-19 outcomes due to: 1) co-occurring health conditions; 2) a disproportionate percentage of the population living in a congregate setting; and 3) the possibility of discriminatory policies and practices regarding access to COVID-19 related resources and care. This webinar will discuss emerging empirical studies that confirm this increased risk, demonstrating higher case rates and case-fatality rates among people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, especially those living in congregate settings.

The presenters will discuss the Commonwealth’s unique approach to the diagnosis, care assessment and support, and training for people with dementia and IDD and their caregivers.
