ECHO OntarioAdult Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities: Moving Forward

ECHO Ontario Adult Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities (AIDD) addresses the intersection of intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD) in adults and mental health concerns. 

This program is for mental health/primary care providers and developmental service providers who support adults with IDD. The curriculum will specifically address the mental health challenges that this population can face as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This ECHO supports healthcare providers in applying the 2018 Canadian consensus guidelines on primary care for adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities from Canadian Family Physician.
