Including You – Coping with grief through COVID

These are uncertain times and we continue to suffer the loss of many things from our typical holiday events to our daily routines.

Including You is brought to you in partnership with the Tuscarawas County Board of Developmental Disabilities.

With the monumental loss many are facing, TuscBDD wants to open the conversation about COVID-19. Feelings of grief are born when a person experiences a loss of an important element, item, event, or person in their life. Officials at TuscBDD explain that a person with developmental disabilities experiences grief just like you and I do; however, their ability to express their feelings or understanding of them may vary depending on their ability to comprehend what is happening.

There are several ways you can support a person with developmental disabilities through their loss.

For more information and additional resources be sure to contact the Tuscarawas County Board of Developmental Disabilities.
