These cases are designed for LEND and UCEDD trainees to learn more about the adult phase of the life course continuum of health and health care for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Developed with support from the HealthMeet Project of the Arc. these modules do not currently offer CME credits. We are exploring options for making credits available to Delaware providers in the near future.
