Professional development opportunities for RARC MAT practitioners, community psychologists, education and accessibility professionals

As a centre of excellence, RARC hosts professional development events for psychologists and professionals in the field of neuropsychological assessment and post-secondary accessibility and transition services. RARC hosts a yearly two-day workshop as well as the High Incidence Disabilities Conference (HIDC) which takes place every few years. 

HIDC Conference 

We are excited to host our 3rd High Incidence Disabilities Conference on May 2 and 3, 2024 in Toronto, Ontario.  This year’s theme is: Navigating Assessment, Academic Accommodations, and Post-Secondary Supports in a Changing World.  This event features several well-respected and prominent keynote speakers in the fields of mental health, learning disabilities, and ADHD, as well as breakout workshops from other field experts.
