Publication: Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Asian American Families with Children with Developmental Disabilities
Dr. Irang Kim is a co-author of "Brief Report: Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Asian American Families with Children with Developmental Disabilities" in the Journal of Developmental and Physical Disabilities. The article summarizes survey results from May to July 2020 in the immediate aftermath of state and local lockdowns due to the pandemic and discusses research limitations and implications. Twenty-five Asian American caregivers of children with autism and other developmental disabilities completed the survey and reported on the pandemic’s impact on their household. Most of the caregivers were mothers, immigrants, Chinese, raising children with autism, and highly educated. Participants’ primary concerns were the disruption of their children’s educational and therapeutic services.
