Operation House Call

Operation House Call is proudly presented to you by The Arc. Thank you. We hope that you enjoy your course.

Healthcare disparities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) are grave. Access continues to be a huge concern especially for adults who need qualified doctors to provide primary and specialty care. Operation House Call (OHC), a program of The Arc of Massachusetts, is addressing this policy priority in a hands-on way. OHC has been successfully providing training to thousands of medical students and other health professionals through a best practices model that is now available to chapters of The Arc.

Operation House Call flips the script to make families and individuals with I/DD the instructors teaching young medical professionals essential skills to enhance the health care of individuals with I/DD. This unique opportunity provides sensitivity training and disability competence to help build medical professionals confidence in working with individuals with I/DD. The program provides a lecture, taught by a volunteer parent professional, and an experiential learning opportunity – through a two-hour home visit to a family who has a child with an I/DD (hence house call) and written self-reflection essays.

For $200 the Operation House Call toolkit includes:

Step-by-step instructions to help disability organizations partner with a medical school and implement the program in their area

  • Sample templates
  • Sample program budget
  • Staffing plan
  • Evaluation forms for families and medical students

For additional guidance during implementation, you can contact Maura Sullivan (sullivan@arcmass.org) at The Arc of Massachusetts to arrange a consultation. There are additional fees for consultation which are not included in the purchase of the toolkit. Consultation fees can be worked out directly with The Arc of Massachusetts.
