The 2016 International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual Developmental Disabilities (IASSIDD) 15th World Congress will be held in Melbourne from 15-19 August 2016.

Scope’s Communication and Inclusion Resource Centre (CIRC) will host a trade display at the conference as well as present a number of papers and posters as part of the proceedings. CIRC will also host a group of international delegates following the conference who are keen to find out further information on their services.

Ahead of the opening of the congress, on Sunday 14th August, the Disability Support Worker conference will be held. The conference is designed to provide frontline workers with the opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills that will enhance the quality of services to people with intellectual disabilities.
