Register for Upcoming AAIDD Webinars & Virtual Education

Please note: 

*Beginning in January 2021, AAIDD webinars will go "behind the member wall." AAIDD members will continue to register and have access to the webinar archive at no cost; however, non-members will be charged a small fee ($10) to register for the live webinars. 

*Webinars are recorded; the archive is generally available on the website the following day. Beginning February 2021, the webinar archive will exclusively be a member benefit. 

*Participation in virtual professional development sessions are limited to AAIDD members.

*Continuing education units (CEs) are not offered for AAIDD webinars. Confirmations of attendance are sent to attendees of live webinars via email. If receiving a confirmation of attendance is important to you we recommend you join by computer as Zoom doesn't always recognize attendees who join via phone.

The Power of Online Connection

Registration is free for members, $10 for non-members

Description: 

During the last year, the Dunamis Educational Foundation and one of their community partners, the Gwinnett County Public Library, have worked to enhance learning and decrease isolation for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The pandemic necessitated the move from face to face to online connection, but we have learned a lot about using this platform to support individuals at a distance. We will share our adventure, unanticipated benefits, and tips for creating these experiences in your community.
