Adolescents and Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder

The Developmental Disabilities Primary Care Initiative has brought together clinicians with expertise in the care of adults with developmental disabilities (DD) to improve primary care and quality of life for these persons. With leadership and coordination from Surrey Place Centre, and funding from the Ontario Ministry of Community and Social Services, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, and Surrey Place Centre Foundation, Guidelines and Tools have been developed to help primary care providers to follow best practices in the care of these patients.
The Family Medicine Curriculum Resource (download print or web version) integrates case-based modules with a faculty handbook to assist teachers of these modules. It was developed by members of the DDPCI Curriculum Working Group chaired by Ian Casson, Queen’s University.
