Beacon in the Storm: Innovation in the Midst of Crisis


June 2 – 4, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has had effects on I/DD systems which will change the very fabric of our supports throughout the United States and the world. In the midst of this crisis, we have found reasons to be hopeful; not just in the compassion and responsiveness of our communities, but in the creative changes and innovations to our service system which have potential value beyond the emergency. How do we identify the new and innovative ways devised to support people which could improve services post emergency? How do systems gather lessons learned and implement changes within their service structures to better address future disaster response needs? What have been our beacons in this storm guiding us to recovery and leading us to a future that is more person-centered; offers greater flexibility; supports families; strengthens communities; leverages technology, and is more prepared for future disruptions?
