Dementia and Intellectual Disability Workshops
The National Task Group on Intellectual Disabilities and Dementia Practices (NTG) is offering a series of workshops on “Dementia Capable Care of Adults with Intellectual Disabilities and Dementia” at several locations over the next coming few months. This workshop is offered as a two-day “basic” course or a three-day “Train-the-Trainer” course. It is based on the newly developed, evidence-informed NTG Education and Training Curriculum on Dementia and Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities and is designed to complement the requirements for workforce skill enhancement under the National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease. These workshops are appropriate for clinicians, program administrators, family caregivers, and staff with direct or ancillary care responsibilities of older adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in disability-, health care-, and aging-related agencies.
The dates, locations, and registration information of the upcoming workshops in the San Diego, Topeka, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Worcester, and Chicago areas can be accessed via the NTG’s website at:
NTG is supported by the American Academy of Developmental Medicine and Dentistry and the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Developmental Disabilities and Health at the University of Illinois.
