A group of medical students at the University of Pittsburgh, along with physicians, autism advocacy staff, and medical students across the country created the attached COVID19 resource and symptom guide for individuals on the autism spectrum and/or with ID. We are working on sharing it with any and all community groups. The guide was created to distill the CDC guidelines to a reading level and to be visually informative and accessible to all individuals. We hope this guide can be of use to your staff, clients, and families. Additionally, these are available in a Spanish version.
