This multidisciplinary resource develops topics of interest to all those who care about and for individuals with co-occurring intellectual disabilities and mental illness. Each chapter presents current evidence informed practice knowledge. Each topic is also presented with audio enabled text boxes emphasizing ‘Key Points for Caregivers.' For those who are interested in background knowledge, we provided the comprehensive literature base. And, for those interested mainly in ‘what to do,' we provided text box summaries for reading and listening.
These free online courses are also known as MOOCs (massive open online courses). MOOCs are short courses that are usually run free of charge by major learning providers to expand your knowledge of a particular academic topic or to help you develop a specific skill. They are free to take part in and are open to everyone regardless of age, education level and location.
