In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Department of Education has provided some informal guidance related to implementing Part B of the IDEA and Section 504 during this time. The link provides questions and answers outlining states’ responsibilities to infants, toddlers, and children with disabilities and their families, and to staff serving these children. During this time, the educational community will undoubtedly need to coordinate with their state educational agency or local health department, as appropriate, to address questions about how, what, and when services should be provided to children with disabilities.
This is a challenging time for the world, but we shall persevere. Stay safe.
