About the Study
The COVID-19 pandemic required creative approaches to meeting the mental health support needs of individuals with intellectual disabilities. Service and clinical treatment approaches had to quickly adapt in response to the rapidly changing environment.
There is a rich source of collective wisdom from our fellow professionals around the world and we can learn a great deal from one another. This exploration gives us a glimpse into the larger world of clinical and professional practice.
This study involves completion of an online survey being sent to clinicians in over 100 countries.
The goals are: to learn from clinical professionals and service providers regarding what they did to pivot and respond quickly to the unplanned circumstances relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically what was successful and what was not.
Through this study we will learn from our global community of practitioners and have the opportunity to further explore or adapt new ideas to our own framework for treatment and service provision.
