Developed in association with
The National Association of State
Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS)
NADD developed the NADD Competency-Based IDD/MI Dual Diagnosis Clinical Certification Program to improve the quality and effectiveness of services provided to individuals with a dual diagnosis through the development of competency-based professional standards and through promoting ongoing professional development.
Clinical certification through NADD validates and provides assurance to people receiving services, professional colleagues, employers, and third-party payers that a clinician has met the standards established by NADD for providing services to individuals with IDD/MI. Certification attests to the clinician’s competency in providing these services.
Clinicians who receive NADD certification will be entitled to use “NADD-CC” as a credential.
A Clinician in the field of dual diagnosis is defined as an individual who provides clinical supports or services for persons with intellectual/developmental disabilities and mental health needs.
