Pandemic can be a tougher mental strain on individuals with IDD
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) — Two months quarantined at home can be a mental strain on all of us.
Sasha Brodtman admittedly she loves being at home, but she does miss her best buddy, Palm Beach Central high classmate Emily Perham. Sasha has Down syndrome, and Sasha and Emily were paired by their high school’s Best Buddies chapter last year. They attended school functions together, shared meals at lunch or just hung out at the Steak ‘n Shake.
The only times they’ve seen each other in person over the last few weeks has been during birthday car parades and on Zoom.Watch the video
