On April 6, 2020, the Walton Family Foundation shared a blog post by Lauren Morando Rhim highlighting the ways in which the Center is supporting the education of students with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a researcher, consultant and advocate for students with disabilities, I have spent the last 25 years working to ensure that every child can have access to a high-quality public education.
This access has become even more precarious as school districts and states grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Adjusting to distance learning is challenging in the most ideal of circumstances. For students with disabilities, who often thrive on the routine and structure of school, processing this change can be tremendously challenging.
