Overview: The event will provide a review and discussion of the speakers’ experiences shifting Clinical Services for adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) to be completed remotely, and provide an overview of agency-wide considerations from a community-based provider.  Topics to be reviewed include addressing health and safety concerns, updating technology needs, completing consents for change in service modality, organizing no-contact access to necessary programming materials and supplies, minimizing traffic in group homes and providing virtual services, providing a meaningful day for participants sheltering-in-place, addressing participant virus and hygiene skill development needs, proactively addressing participant and staff mental health and self-care needs, preventing burnout, and accessing grants and other resources.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss various ways to set clients up for success during a shelter-in-place order or when they are unable to leave their home.
  • Review tasks needed to set staff up for success during a shelter-in-place order or when they have limited face-to-face contact with their supervisors and support team.
  • Learn to obtain resources to contribute to client and staff success during a shelter-in-place order.
