Eapen, V., Hiscock, H., & Williams, K. Adaptive innovations to provide services to children with developmental disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. J Paediatr Child Health. November 2020.
This opinion piece summarizes the disparities in healthcare access among children with developmental disabilities heightened due to school closures, self-isolation, and financial losses. To prevent these children from falling behind in their health check-ups, the authors argue that innovative care delivery models like telehealth visits must be prioritized and subsidized both during and after the current pandemic.
