The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities (NJ UCEDD/LEND) Develops COVID-19 Resources

June 8, 2020

The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities, New Jersey's UCEDD and LEND program, has developed training and resources to address informational needs related to COVID-19. In April, the Center launched its "Just in Time" Webinar Series to provide virtual learning opportunities focused on emotional well-being, mental health, behavior supports, creating meaningful days, and DSP skill building and self-care.

The Center has also created a number of publications to help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities process grief and loss, navigate the changing landscape of employment during the time of COVID-19, and plan for emergency situations in which a primary caregiver can no longer provide support. In addition, The Boggs Center and Children's Specialized Hospital developed a series of resources to help children understand and feel comfortable wearing face masks, including one-pagers for parents and a social story for children.
