INDEX Takes Leadership Role In Sharing COVID-19 Resources

INDEX, a program of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center dedicated to research, education, and service related to developmental disabilities, has taken a leadership role during the COVID-19 pandemic. INDEX’s “Resource List’ presents information about COVID-19, along with its impacts, effects, and preventative measures, geared to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (and their families). This resource offers information about COVID-19 in a variety of ways, including: 

  • Providing documents in “plain language” to assist with readability and comprehension
  • Using illustrations and examples of behavior designed to prevent the spread of COVID 19
  • Highlighting the latest guidance from Massachusetts governmental officials as a verified, reliable, source of information

The resource list is regularly updated, and can be found at:
