QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ON PROVIDING SERVICES TO CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES DURING A COVID-19 OUTBREAK


 

Back-to-School Checklist

Many families are wondering whether their child should go to school in-person or learn from home online.

The statements in this checklist may help you identify some things that you and your family are concerned about. You may want to discuss this list with your doctor or nurse, especially if your child has any health issues. 

Our hope is for families and medical providers to use this checklist to guide conversations about sending their children back to school safely.
