Making Vaccination Safe and Comfortable
The University of Houston-Clear Lake, with support from TCDD, created training materials to help medical professionals, family members, and community health aides promote cooperation, comfort, and safety for people with DD receiving vaccines or other health care services. The materials are part of a project called Behavior Analysis for Inclusive Vaccine Administration to address health care disparities experienced by people with DD.
The training includes modules for health care professionals, parents and caregivers, and community health aides. Each module features an online video, a supplemental PDF handbook, and virtual Q&A sessions.
