Supporting Improved Responses to People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
March 23, 2023
Through a partnership with The Arc’s National Center on Criminal Justice and Disability and The Council of State Governments Justice Center, four Justice and Mental Health Collaboration grant programs received technical assistance and support to improve their responses to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Based on this assistance, four overarching themes emerged that can be used to guide other programs in their efforts to enhance responses to this population. The Supporting Improved Responses to People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities brief highlights those themes and gives an overview of each grantee’s program, including the work they have done with the help of this technical assistance.
