Dementia and Intellectual Disability

The Centre for Developmental Disability Health was funded by Disability Services Division, Department of Human Services, to produce learning modules for disability staff supporting people who were at risk of developing, or had already been identified as having, dementia.

There are 4 modules in the series addressing key questions you may have when supporting someone with dementia. Each module takes about 15 minutes to complete. You can pause or rewind at any time to make notes or review content and you can view them at their website.
