Guidance & Resources During COVID19 Restrictions
NTACT is aware that state and local education and service providers are challenged by the current health concerns, closings, and restrictions associated with COVID19. For informal guidance, please see the March 2020 OSERS Q&A on Providing Services to Children with Disabilities During the Coronavirus Disease 2019 Outbreak, which outlines states’ responsibilities to infants, toddlers, and children with disabilities and their families, and to the staff serving these children. Additionally, the Office of Civil Rights Fact Sheet is available for reference.The U.S. Department of Education's mailbox for COVID questions is at COVIDemail@example.com. Questions may be sent there and indicate that they are related to IDEA, when submitted.
NTACT is hosting a webinar for practitioners and family members next Tuesday morning at 11 AM, Eastern. Register. Additional resources willl continue to be posted here and with the webinar. Please view more information under our Events tab.
If you have resources to share with other States or practitiioners and families - focused on serving transition-age students, while not attending school and work-sites in person - please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org with a request that they be shared and we will add them our resource page. We will collate through submissions and share what is most pertinent.
