The Academy, an arm of the International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual Disabilities, was formed in 2006 in order to promote clinical and academic skills in low- and middle-income countries (LAMICs) and to carry out educational activities within international events. This article describes the global context of knowledge dissemination and examples of workshops and courses led by Academy members. Discussed are reflections on the important lessons learnt from the Academy experiences to date and recommendations on better coordinating and delivering Academy-sponsored trainings and consultations in LAMICs.
