Academic collaborative center living with an intellectual disability
The Academic Collaborative Center Living with an intellectual disability (in Dutch abbreviated as AWVB) aims to improve the quality of life and care for people with intellectual disabilities and their families. We develop concrete and accessible resources on the basis of scientific research, in collaboration with individuals with intellectual disabilities, their families, and the healthcare professionals that support them.
Ten years AWVB, ten years research and practice
The AWVB has been committed to the connection between research and practice in care for people with intellectual disabilities for ten years. And we celebrate that!
Research at the AWVB is structured into five themes.

FOR PRACTICE AND EDUCATION
The AWVB translates academic research into easily accessible practical resources and educational modules, allowing the integration of current scientific research findings into practice and education as quickly as possible. Our resources have been primarily developed for use in Dutch practice and education. Some of our resources have been translated into English and are happy to provide more information about them and other resources upon request.
