Abstract

Northern Italy was dramatically affected by COVID-19 during early 2020. Suspending educational and rehabilitation services during the lockdown that followed increased the burden on the parents of children with special healthcare needs, including those diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, psychomotor delays and other neurodevelopmental disabilities. In this context, the parents had to provide round-the-clock care, without direct access to local services and healthcare specialists. Assuring continuity of family-centred care was a key priority during lockdown.
