Project seeks to improve telehealth delivery for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities

In response to the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the delivery of healthcare services, the Michigan Developmental Disabilities Institute (MI-DDI) and the Michigan Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (MI-LEND) Program are leading an effort to learn more about the telehealth experiences of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and their families. The goal of the project is to develop training materials that will be used to inform future healthcare professionals about best practices for using telehealth to provide care to individuals with IDD and their families.

To accomplish the goals of this project, we are conducting surveys to learn about your experiences with telehealth. Please consider completing a very brief survey if you fit into one of the following categories:

  • Healthcare professional
  • Individual diagnosed with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (aged 18-26 years old)
  • A family member of an individual (aged 0-26 years old) diagnosed with an intellectual and/or developmental disability
  • Current or former LEND Trainee/Fellow
