COVID-19 Update

We continue to update our COVID-19 information page with links to useful and credible resources for information about the global and national situation, as well as local information in partner regions. The newest additions include information about return-to-school (in-person, online, or hybrid) around the United States.
Our Services Directory offers information about a variety of potential service providers, including respite care, emergency food and financial assistance, and housing information. Please contact individual providers to confirm their hours and programs before visiting as many may have adjusted operations at this time. Stay healthy!

Menu Changes

Topics and sub-topics in the For Parents & Families and For Physicians & Professionals pages all have an Overview page; we have changed how this page appears on the menu.

Previously, each topic or sub-topic with multiple pages had an Overview page (red boxes above); clicking the topic opened the menu of pages and sub-topics. Clicking Overview took you to the topic overview page. Now, clicking the topic or sub-topic title takes you to the Overview page and opens to the menu to show additional pages and sub-topics. Topics with multiple pages show "| v" after the topic title. Clicking the "v" opens the menu of pages and sub-topics without opening the overview page.
