Disability Community Overall

The coronavirus and COVID-19 crisis impact the disability community in ways that are both universal and unique. On this page we have gathered resources from people with disabilities and disability organizations that can assist employers in understanding the way in which the disabled community is impacted. Also included are articles from other sources that focus on what employers and others can learn from people with disabilities during the crisis.

About the COVID-19 Response Series

As we work together and learn during this unprecedented time, we are guided by two broad principles:

  1. Designing and implementing responses to COVID-19 that are based on facts, objective evidence, and science; and
  2. Ensuring that our responses are genuine, effective, and meaningful by taking into consideration the functional needs of all employees, including individuals with disabilities through the provision of reasonable accommodations, including accessible websites, online systems, mobile apps and other forms of information and communication technologies.

Disability:IN has compiled the following resources to support your disability inclusion work during COVID-19. Please know that more resources will be added as they become available. If you have a resource that isn’t listed but should be, please email Kate Calcutt.
