The COVID-19 pandemic has in many parts of the world made it necessary to impose strict restrictions to reduce the spread of the disease and to avoid overwhelming healthcare services. These restrictions and the concerns regarding the COVID-19 illness have had an immense impact on individuals with a childhood disability and their families, and on the professionals working with them.

Goal Setting

Goal setting can be a challenge, but even so it is essential that we do it well for children with disabilities and target what is really important for children, young people and their families.
