A Plain Language Toolkit on COVID-19

The Coronavirus or COVID-19 is changing our lives in many ways for a while. As of March 9, 2020, SARTAC and Green Mountain Self-Advocates have been co-hosting 2 zoom meetings a week. In response to our conversations, we have created this toolkit about the Coronavirus. It focuses on “need to know” information. Our goal is to for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to have plain language information during this national crisis. There are 9 sections of this toolkit. You can download each section or the entire toolkit below.
