The Human Rights of Children with Disabilities and Impact on Neurodevelopment During the COVID-19 Pandemic


Presenter: Verónica Schiariti, MD, MHSc, PhD

Course Summary: 

While COVID-19 continues to spread across the globe, public health strategies—including social distancing measures that many countries have implemented— have caused disruptions to daily routines. For children with disabilities and their families, such measures mean a lack of access to the resources they usually have through schools and habilitation or rehabilitation services. In context of the COVID-19 pandemic, in this eCourse, Dr Schiariti highlights the importance of reviewing the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the UN Convention on persons with disabilities, as well as additional disability considerations for children and their families during the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Registration Opens: May 4

Course Begins: May 15 (self-paced)

Course Closes: June 1 (no extensions allowed)

Course Cost: $25 AACPDM Members / $35 Non-Members

Registration for the eCourse is officially open, and will remain open until the course begins on May 11, 2020. Participants will then have until June 1, 2020 to complete the coursework at their own pace. Upon completion, certificates will be available for CME and CEUs and Participation.
