The impact of COVID-19 on people with Intellectual Disabilities
Our colleague Tomás Murphy has co-written an Inclusion Ireland report on the impact of COVID-19 on people with Intellectual Disabilities. Tomás along with two of his fellow Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities (TCPID) graduates Margaret and Chris, conducted Zoom interviews with 11 adults who have intellectual disabilities over the summer, to see how their work, social life, and independence was impacted by the pandemic.

We are proud of Tomás for such an insightful report about the real impact COVID-19 can have for people with intellectual disabilities and for giving the participants in the report a means for their experience to be heard.
