The Association of Psychologists in Developmental Disability Services (PsychDD) is a professional interest group for Psychologists who work in or around the developmental disability sector within NSW. We aim to support practitioners in their work with people with a disability and their families. We do this in many ways including providing opportunities for Continuing Professional Development (CPD), advocating and liaising on behalf of our members, and also providing ongoing support and networking opportunities for our members.
