The International Alliance Of Academies of Childhood Disability has put together an IAACD COVID-19 Task Force and is compiling information from centers collecting data on COVID-19 and childhood disability. If your center is participating in such research, please click below.

Welcome to Global COVID-19 Childhood Disability Data Coordination
Please add information to our growing list of surveys for the Global COVID-19 Childhood Disability Data Coordination
Surveys do not need to be COVID-19-specific to be added to this list (for example ongoing surveys related to childhood-onset disability can be added, global representation is welcome!).

Team Everett

The link below is showing a toy - the wildthing- that has been adapted with a joystick. It goes out side and has a higher weight limit than many other mobility toys. https://www.facebook.com/100029177131749/posts/344549743194261/?d=n

So thankful to Jerry from Quantum Rehab and Courtney from the Pediatric Movement Center for getting Everett set up with his new joystick on his adapted Wild Thing yesterday. Our little guy was able to zoom a little bit just before it started to rain and already loves it!

Elsass Fonden - The Elsass Foundation Research Prize

We reach out to you in hope of getting a helping hand in creating awareness about probably the biggest research prize in the field of cerebral palsy.

In 2021 our foundation (the Elsass Foundation in Denmark) will award The Elsass Foundation Research Prize to a researcher - only for the second time in history. The prize amount is 150.000 € - primarily earmarked for new research.

Nomination for this prize is open now, so we would like to ask, if you can help us out in spreading the message in any way? Through your website, newsletter, social media or on other platforms? Nomination closes on the 26th of June, so unfortunately we are a bit short in time.

If you have any kinds of publications containing adds, we would also be interested in buying such space as a supplement.

We really hope you can help us out? I've attached a pdf with further information and the direct link to our nominationspage is:

Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you in advance!

Best regards

Registration for AACPDM's newest eCourse is NOW OPEN!
While COVID-19 continues to spread across the globe, public health strategies—including social distancing measures that many countries have implemented— have caused disruptions to daily routines. For children with disabilities and their families, such measures mean a lack of access to the resources they usually have through schools and habilitation or rehabilitation services. In context of the COVID-19 pandemic, in this eCourse, Dr. Schiariti highlights the importance of reviewing the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the UN Convention on persons with disabilities, as well as additional disability considerations for children and their families during the COVID-19 outbreak.
