Clallam County Parent to Parent is hosting a free virtual “Roundtable Discussion: Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities and Coming Out of the Pandemic” at 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 1, via Zoom.
Panelists will lead a discussion regarding how individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities in our local communities have fared during this pandemic. They will address whether or not members of the DD community have seen worse outcomes or not.
Additional topics include what have we learned from the current pandemic that could improve outcomes for individuals during future crises, and special considerations for helping our community of individuals with disabilities as they get back to “normal life.”
Members of the panel include: Dr. Allison Berry, Clallam County Health Officer; Wendy Bonham, parent advocate and volunteer with Clallam County Orcas ; Christine Motokane; a self advocate, author and para-educator; Linda Middleton from Concerned Citizens; Wayne Bartz from Morningside; Karen Pierce from Pierce, Jones & Associates, and Catherine McKinney, sibling advocate from Clallam Mosaic.
