Autism Opportunities: Take Action!
From The American Academy of Developmental Medicine and Dentistry
Young adults and their families who are seeking adult medical care often report it is very difficult to find providers who match their pediatric providers in knowledge about, training in and experience with caring for those with disabilities or special health care needs. This is an issue outlined in ACHIEVA’s new report titled Transition from Pediatrics to Adult Medical Systems for Young Adults with Disabilities or Special Health Care Needs.
The Arc is seeking caregiver views of the health status of the people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) they support. If you or someone you know is a paid or unpaid professional, or family member caregiver of someone with I/DD, we invite you to take a short, confidential online assessment to help collect valuable information about caregiver views of the health status of people with I/DD. Take the survey.
