Some kids with disabilities can’t learn at home. Parents and advocates want to know: What’s the plan?

Jen Sherman and her son, Gavin, 14, are sheltering in place at their West Hartford home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Gavin is a special education eighth-grader at King Philip Middle School and is now doing distance learning at home. His mom is working from home putting in about sixty hours a week, struggling to work and help Gavin at the same time. “Gavin needs routine and structure,” said Jen Sherman.   |   photo by: Cloe Poisson :: CTMirror.org
