Event
A Closer Look: Face Masks and People with Disabilities
Type
Webinar
Description
In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and many state and local governments recommend wearing a face mask or face covering in public places and around people who do not live in the same household, in addition to other prevention measures such as handwashing and social distancing. Some disabilities make it difficult or impossible to wear a face mask and some individuals with mobility/movement disorders have difficulty putting on, adjusting, and/or removing a face mask without assistance. This webinar outlines CDCís face mask guidelines and explores solutions to challenges some people with disabilities experience in attempting to follow the guidance. Participants will receive tips, resources, and guidance for wearing face masks to protect themselves from COVID-19.

Participants will be eligible for CEUs from the AAC Institute and CRCs from the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC).

Webinars are presented through Zoom. Captions and American Sign Language will be available. All webinars are recorded and the archive, transcript, accessible presentation, as well as additional handouts will be made available within one week of the live webinar.

Participants will receive the Zoom link one hour before the live webinar.
