Important Update for 2021:

ISAAC has, over the course of the past number of years, developed a significant capacity to host informative and well-attended webinars. This has been done in close collaboration with our friends and partners at both ISAAC-US (USSAAC), AAIDD and, more recently, ISAAC-Canada.

Beginning in January 2021, the majority of archived webinars will be moved to a new location in the Members Only area portion of our website.  (A number of webinars will continue to be publicly available here.)

What this change means is that now only members will be able to access the majority of our archived webinar recordings.

Registration for the majority of upcoming new webinars will be available from within the Members Only area, and a valid ISAAC member ID number will need to be entered at time of registration.

It is our hope that many of the people who have benefited from attending or viewing our webinars will become members of ISAAC in order to continue to enjoy this significant membership benefit.

Thank you!
