DADS Has Released a Free Online Course Which Teaches How to Support Someone with an IDD Who Has Suffered Trauma

If you care for, support or advocate for a person with an IDD, DADS encourages you to take this free online course: Trauma-Informed Care for Individuals with an Intellectual or Developmental Disability (IDD). This is the second module in a 6-part e-learning training series titled, Mental Health Wellness for Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (MHW-IDD).

The module focuses on:

  • the signs and symptoms of trauma,
  • the impact of trauma on someone with an IDD, and

The other modules will be added to the DADS site soon. Topics for those are:

  • Co-occurring disorders: IDD and Mental Illness
