Operation House Call

Improving Health Care Quality, Access, and Competency

Access to healthcare continues to be a huge concern for adults with I/DD who need qualified doctors to provide primary and specialty care.

Operation House Call (OHC) uses a hands-on approach to address these issues by flipping the script and making families the instructor. Medical students experience an in-home visit to a family with a loved one with I/DD to gain a unique perspective into their lives and gain essential sensitivity and disability competency skills to help build their confidence in working with the I/DD population.

The OHC toolkit is designed to help chapters of The Arc and other disability organizations replicate the Operation House Call Program in their own community.Learn more about the Operation House Call toolkit.
