COVID-19 has created severe disruption in the world, and the impact of COVID-19 (and accompanied measures) is very high also for people with a disability, their families, and their therapists and health care providers.

Dear members, dear friends of the EACD,

The tragic days experienced with dramatic progression by my country have taken all my time and also my thoughts. The words I could have used, would have expressed too much my feelings of fear, the shock of my fellow citizens, especially those from the North of Italy, where most of my relatives live.
