Learning/Intellectual Disability

Learning and intellectual disabilities and neurological and developmental disorders are different from mental illnesses. We do not have programs for them here at AMI-Quebec, but  there are many other organizations that can help.

For help with learning or intellectual disabilities (including ADD and ADHD), please see below. For neurological and developmental disorders (including Autism and Tourettes), please scroll down.
