About this section

The Intellectual Disability Forum is made up of a number of practitioners, academics and researchers from different disciplines who come together three times a year to explore and discuss the most up-to-date evidence on intellectual disabilities. The purpose of the Forum is to develop bespoke national conferences on Intellectual Disability topics.

Section meetings and conferences are usually organised by members of the Section Council, led by the Section President and often in collaboration with specialist societies.
