Register for Upcoming AAIDD Webinars & Virtual Education

Webinars

*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. 

*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. 




Virtual Professional Development

*Participation in virtual professional development (Mentorship in a Minute and Crucial Conversations) sessions are limited to AAIDD members.

  • Psychopharmacology: Person Centered Considerations in IDD

    Dates: 27 – 27 Jan, 2022
    Event Type: Webinar

    Date: January 27, 2022

    Time:
    4:00 pm (EST)

    Presenters: 
    Melissa Cheplic, MPH, Rutgers University
    Tony Thomas, MSW, Welcome House, Inc.

    Description:
    People with Intellectual and Developmental disabilities (IDD) are at risk for mental health conditions and may take many medications. Medications are often prescribed and then changed frequently due to incomplete diagnostic information. Communication challenges can affect a person’s ability to report their effectiveness. This webinar will review considerations for the use of psychotropic medication, including the role of the support team in advocating for a person with co-occurring disorders during prescribing, planning, treatment, and recovery. A symptom tracking tool to support person-centered prescribing practices will also be introduced and discussed.
