The Higher Council for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (HCD) on Sunday launched a YouTube channel to support people with intellectual disabilities and their families by ensuring access to a set of basic services amid the coronavirus lockdown that the country is experiencing.

The council, in coordination with platforms dedicated to the field of intellectual disability, has collected how-to videos related to skills development, speech therapy and maintaining acquired skills through guidance on using educational tools.

The new HCD resources for intellectual disability channel can be found at https://www.youtube.com/channel, according to a council statement carried by the Jordan News Agency, Petra.
