CDDHV staff developed a smoking cessation and smoking education course for people with an intellectual disability in Victoria. This program is based on Quit Victoria's Fresh Start course. Centre for Developmental Disability Health Victoria, 2007, 81pp,

This program is designed for smokers with an intellectual disability to learn more about why they smoke and the effects smoking has upon them. The program encourages them to quit smoking and supports their efforts to do so. The program includes an “I can quit ” or “Stop Smoking Day” to provide a clear goal and to assist them in identifying the areas that will be problematic for them in the transition to becoming non-smokers.
