COVID-19 and people with intellectual disabilities
There is growing international concern that people with intellectual disabilities, many of whom have compromised health, are particularly vulnerable to infection by COVID-19.
Can you produce podcasts?
A volunteer wanted to assist with producing podcasts for the Australasian Society for intellectual Disability (ASID). ASID produces podcasts as part of its suite of information strategies to ensure listeners can hear evidence based information about topics of interest pertaining to people with an intellectual disability.
