Please take a moment to read these important pandemic-related resources from state and national agencies and organizations. Topics include academic achievement during online learning, flu shots, coping with pandemic fatigue and a new disability support phone line.

As the COVID-19 pandemic wears on, a new 24-hour support line is helping individuals with developmental disabilities and those who care for them cope during this tough time. The Arc of California and the Stony Brook University School of Social Welfare have launched Project Connect: Disability Support Phone Line, a free telehealth line available anytime, across the nation, for people with disabilities and their families, caregivers and other members of their support teams. The line is staffed by graduate students at the school who are supervised by licensed social workers. Callers can expect to receive support, guidance and referrals.
