Description

Join us for the third annual Conference for IDD. More than 42,000 individuals in Texas are diagnosed with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). At Metrocare Services, we strive to provide quality services to those diagnosed with IDD and support to their families, as well as educate our community on best practices for service delivery.

Metrocare is excited to share that the 2018 Conference for IDD is being presented with support by Money Follows the Person, a Texas Department of Aging and Disabilities project to expand training and educational opportunities to people who serve individuals with IDD.

New and innovative programs across the IDD spectrum

  • Developing a Human Sexuality Education Program for Individuals with IDD
  • Charting the LifeCourse Framework and Tools
  • Managing and De-Escalating Crisis: A Developmental and Person-Centered Approach
  • Dementia Care
  • IDD & Bullying


Nationally renowned subject-matter experts and award-winning authors

This year’s conference is in mini-workshop fashion so you will have three (3) hours with the experts. This format provides you with an intensive educational experience to learn new techniques or ideas to use in your programs. If you are a clinician, professional, paraprofessional, advocate, caregiver, guardian or a family member who supports individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, this is a MUST-ATTEND event.
