Sonoran UCEDD initiated the I-AADAPT project in the fall of 2016 to bring to Arizona the Dementia Capable Care Training developed by the National Task Group on Intellectual Disabilities and Dementia Practices. The I-AADAPT project team adapted the national curriculum to meet the needs of specific audiences and implemented the curriculum across Arizona. This study provides the preliminary results of pre-/post-workshop evaluations (N=152) of the I-AADAPT family/community provider curriculum.
