More than isolated: The experience of children and young people with disability and their families during the COVID-19 pandemic

Survey report.

Report on CYDA’s 2020 “COVID-19 and children and young people with disability” survey by Professor Helen Dickinson and Dr Sophie Yates, Public Service Research Group, School of Business, UNSW Canberra, for Children and Young People with Disability Australia.

Many of those who care for children and young people with disability are constantly beset by difficult decisions and precariously balancing work, play, care and education to provide the best possible lives for those under their care. Many people can only manage these things when the world is operating as it normally does – but this global pandemic (especially when immediately preceded by bushfires) has thrown these precariously balanced routines off to such a degree that families are struggling to cope.
