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 members:

General Practitioners, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, social workers, professionals allied to medicine, care service workers, teachers, academics and researchers with an interest in the activities of the Forum.

Section council:

Section meetings and conferences are usually organised by members of the Section council, led by the Section President.  We welcome service users and their family/paid carers to become Council members.
