Child Trends published a fact sheet about children under 6 years old with disabilities that also considers the intersection of disability with race and ethnicity. The motivation behind this work was to inform early child care and education systems supporting these children and their families in a post-COVID world. COVID-19 has impacted the already sometimes limited availability of important services and supports for children with disabilities, including limited access to accommodations and adapted materials, loss of in-person therapy services, social isolation, and loss of health insurance coverage in the case of newly-unemployed parents or guardians. #covid-19 #childcare #racialequity
