COVID-19

CDAC recognizes that the implications of COVID-19 are serious for people who have disabilities that affect their communication. To help you communicate about Covid-19, we have compiled some resources that may be useful. We will do our best to add to these resources throughout Covid-19. We also suggest that you follow us on social media for updates.

What We Do

We address social justice and accessibility for people who have communication disabilities due to cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorder, Down Syndrome, learning disability, intellectual disability, traumatic brain injury, aphasia after a stroke, dementia, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (or ALS), Parkinson’s disease, or Multiple Sclerosis. We do not address the needs of people who are Deaf, deafened or have a significant hearing loss and who require sign language interpreting services.

Through our funded projects, we consult on accessibility policy and wlegislation, conduct research, develop resources, hosts training and maintain a communication assistance database.

Our resources are used by people who have communication disabilities, family members, disability services, businesses and organizations, government agencies, healthcare professionals, police, legal and justice services, accessibility policy makers, legislators, and communication clinicians.

We do not provide clinical communication services. To find out about communication clinical services, please contact your provincial Speech-Language Pathologist and Audiology Association.
