What We Need - Cynthia Verduzco

July 7, 2020

My name is Cynthia Verduzco and I am mother and my son Leonardo is autistic. I am from Newark, California. The COVID-19 emergency has stopped my sons speech at home therapy. I am worried about regression, he works best with a schedule and being taken off creates a huge delay. His visits to his doctor and visits to his speech therapy have stopped. While we are still being charged full price for our insurance, during this time I am the only one working as my husband is forced to stay home. I know you are working on the fourth relief package for COVID-19. I want to learn more about how you are going to help people with disabilities in this package. Thank you very much for your time.
