In May 2020, CanChild, the Kids Brain Health Network, and the CHILD-BRIGHT Network launched My COVID Disability Q., a new Twitter Q&A hub for Canadian children and youth with disabilities as well as family members speaking on their behalf. Using My COVID Disability Q., youth and their family members are invited to ask questions relating to disabilities and the ongoing COVID-19 situation and get credible answers from some of Canada’s leading disability experts working in a wide range of fields including health, research, science, policy, leisure, and wellbeing.

WHAT TYPES OF QUESTIONS CAN I ASK?

My COVID Disability Q. is a space for Canadian children and youth with disabilities, as well as family members speaking on their behalf, to ask questions that relate to both their disabilities and the COVID-19 outbreak. For example:

  • You may be wondering if your disability puts you at higher-than-average risk to COVID-19, or

  • You may be looking for recommendations for accessible leisure activities to do from home while your normal activities are suspended, or

  • You may be looking to connect with new youth or caregiver communities remotely, or

  • You may be looking for credible sources of information relating to your disability rights in Canada.

The possibilities are endless! We invite you to submit your question in whatever format is easiest for you (you can type it in, submit a video… you can even include photos!). We’re here to help amplify your questions so you can get answers. Note, however, that we will not provide medical advice.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

It’s easy!

  • First, visit us on Twitter at @MyCOVIDQuestion to see what questions Canadians have asked our disability experts to answer already.

  • Then, submit your own question about COVID-19 using our online form

  • Our moderators at CanChild, the Kids Brain Health Network and the CHILD-BRIGHT Network will post selected questions on Twitter at @MyCOVIDQuestion using the #MyCOVIDDisabilityQ hashtag, brainstorm which experts in our vast networks could help answer, and amplify your question by responding and tagging these Canadian scientific, medical, political, policy or knowledge experts.

  • A conversation around your question will then unfold!

Submit a question today!
