About the Conference
We welcome all interested individuals to participate in the 142nd Annual Conference of the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD) – the oldest and most prestigious professional organization for those in the disability field. This meeting will provide content, strategies, and resources that will be invaluable for our diverse attendees. Whether you are an advocate, direct support professional, student, practitioner, manager, researcher, clinician, educator, or policymaker – AAIDD truly has something for everyone!
This is the premier opportunity to share your research, model programs, resources, emerging trends and practices from many areas including education, employment, health, caregiving, advocacy, positive behavior supports and much more!
This year’s theme Reaffirming Diversity and Inclusion couldn’t be timelier, as we reflect upon disability as a major constituent of a diverse population, and how diversity within the intellectual disability field should be acknowledged and celebrated. Furthermore, we will consider how inclusion, now more than ever, remains our overarching goal to help realize and recognize the potential of all people with disabilities. Creative proposals are sought that present research findings, report on innovative practices, and/or analyze public policies or practices. Whether or not your presentation reflects this theme – we welcome your submission to present with us in St. Louis!
