TFL Webinar Series

The Tools for Life team is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic by collecting and vetting resources for individuals with disabilities in the community, as well as their family and circles of support. The resources in these webinars are not meant to replace advice or instruction from a doctor or medical team. These resources are here to educate and empower. We encourage you to take this information, do further research, and share what you've learned with your medical and support teams.

We ask that you share this information with anyone that will benefit. We are in this together and together we are stronger. Stay safe and educated!
