The Department of Professional Services (DPS) oversees research, education and knowledge transfer at West Montreal Readaptation Centre (WMRC). The research team provides concrete support towards developing the expertise of those who work with people who have an ID or/and an ASD, from its own specialization as a second-line resource to the development of knowledge in its particular field. Its support to user services is structured around five areas:

1.       Information, literature reviews and the identification of best practices;
2.       Support for research project development and use of scientific knowledge;
3.       Program evaluation;
4.       Expertise, development and implementation of evidence-based practices;
5.       Liaison between learning institutions, research partners, and WMRC direct services departments.
