Summer’s not the only thing about to happen. What does CPIR have bubbling on the stove right now for Parent Centers, the families you serve, and the school systems with which you work to improve outcomes for children and youth with disabilities?
This Buzz is the rarest of treats for us all: where we can clearly see the fruits of a year’s worth of labor. The results of the Parent Center data collection for 2019-2020 are in, and they reveal the true depth and volume of what Parent Centers accomplished in a year none of us will soon forget.
This Buzz focuses on how we move forward with reopening our lives and schools. Developing sound reopening plans clearly needs to be grounded in and informed by the needs and voices of the community itself, with keen attention to those hardest hit by the pandemic. To that end, we share with you on-point resources about community involvement, strategies for engaging the full diversity of community members in planning efforts, and the role that data can play in informing those plans and how recovery funds are used.
This Buzz focuses on young children with disabilities and new resources that parents and professionals may find helpful in caring for the little ones.
This Buzz brings you a quick list of updated and recently added resources at CPIR, including a guide to CPIR’s resource collections and suites (find key topics for families and staff fast!).
The resources featured in this issue of the Buzz bring you some very welcome news from the CDC and multiple articles about specific disabilities, most written from a personal point of view.
The CDC has just issued guidelines (March 9th) for individuals who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. These guidelines bring exciting and hopeful news, and are available in English, Spanish, and multiple other languages such as Vietnamese, simplified Chinese, and Korean.
Based on what CDC knows about COVID-19 vaccines, people who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic. There are also precautions and behaviors they should maintain regardless of their vaccination. Read all about and access the guidelines here!
We hope you enjoyed lots of treats and scary, imaginative decorations of late, and now we’re back to the tricky new normal, with its challenges and complexities. This Buzz connects you with resources for supporting parents during COVID and for cultivating strong home-school collaborations.
