Adults with intellectual developmental disabilities (IDD), such as autism and Down Syndrome, are not only more susceptible to COVID-19 but have also been facing greater physical and mental health challenges during the pandemic. Bringing together front-line clinicians caring for people with IDD and researchers from a range of disciplines and medical specialties, this webinar series will focus on what has been learnt about this group in relation to COVID-19, the practical implications for their health, and how to move forward. This second webinar addresses supporting people with IDD and their families in coping with behaviours that challenge and mental health during the pandemic.
The expert speakers will address mental health research and practice related to people with IDD, as well as offer resources and practice tips.
