Abstract

The struggles faced by children with special needs during the COVID-19 pandemic are diverse, including higher risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection, restricted access to health-care facilities, limited capability to practice preventive measures along with increased rehabilitation needs due to interruption of schooling and education programmes. The concerns of these children and their caregivers should be resolved with appropriate solutions in order to accomplish an inclusive healthcare response to the global pandemic.

 

Key words: COVID-19, Children, Special Needs
