The Administration for Community Living has been working with a group of federal and non-federal partners – including several experts from the UCEDD network – to develop a COVID-19 decision guide for families with children with special health care needs. We are seeking your assistance with beta testing this tool.
While many children have already started school — parents of children and youth with special healthcare needs (CYSHCN) will continue to make difficult personal decisions about how to keep their children safe and learning. With guidance from public-health experts, parents, and health providers – the Stanford Health Literacy Lab has designed this interactive, educational Guide for Parents of CYSHCN, to help parents make sense of these back-to-school decisions. Please access the Decision Guide at SCOLGuide. Now in “beta test” mode, the Guide is meant to be used on a smartphone, and to guide discussion with a trusted advisor (child health provider).
We are asking that you share this with your networks so that the developers at the Stanford Health Literacy Lab can improve upon this tool to make it most useful to families. We appreciate your assistance with getting the word out about this important resource for families. Please send any feedback within the Guide, or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
