General Information

The Jamaican Association on Intellectual Disabilities (JAID) was established in 1956. Today we are the oldest and largest interdisciplinary organization of parents, professionals, and volunteers providing leadership in the field of intellectual disability.

We have a solid track record in the field. Our various programs, for which we have partnered with the government, continue to provide a range of services to improve the quality of life for persons with intellectual disabilities. We facilitate community integration and acceptance.
We provide services for persons with intellectual and other developmental disabilities including:

• Down syndrome
• Angelman syndrome
• Autism
• Physical disabilities
• Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD.)

Our social service department (SSD) aims to provide social interventions that are ameliorative, rehabilitative, and preventative in nature. These interventions are undertaken to reduce the social challenges facing children with intellectual disabilities that would impact their educational and social development. These programs are part of the 27 Schools of Special Education island-wide.
