Centre for Developmental Disability Health (CDDH) provides education and training to health and disability practitioners to enable the development of positive attitudes and a sound knowledge base in relation to the health issues of people with developmental disabilities.

Established to improve health outcomes for people with developmental disabilities. We believe that the health, and therefore the lives, of people with disabilities can be enhanced by supporting those who provide healthcare to develop positive attitudes towards people with disabilities, and a sound knowledge base in relation to the health issues of people with developmental disabilities.

We provide education and training for:

  • Medical students
  • Medical Practitioners
  • Dental, Nursing and Allied Health students
  • Dental, Nursing and Allied Health practitioners
  • Disability Support Students
  • Disability Support Practitioners

We recognise that those living with disability are the experts on their own experience and their active participation in and contribution to the education of healthcare and disability practitioners is essential.
