Inclusion in a Virtual World:

Many people with IDD have been profoundly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Cut off from school or community relationships, they can be particularly vulnerable to the emotional and logistical difficulties of social isolation. People with IDD are overlooked during times of public emergency, as they are often not in a position to advocate for themselves. Best Buddies is rapidly adapting to ensure that supportive friendships and opportunities for inclusion remain available. Through the use of digital platforms such as Zoom, FaceTime, and other social media outlets, we are implementing virtual events to prove that social distancing doesn't mean social isolation.
