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.
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 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.
