Dear EACD friends,
We hope you are doing well in these challenging times!

We are pleased to share this challenging editorial and podcast by Dr Verónica Schiariti. Dr Schiariti speaks for the Latin American Academy of Child Development and Disabilities (ALDID) and reminds us that children with disabilities face two additional challenges during this pandemic.
