Call for Presentations
AAIDD Conference, Hartford, Connecticut, June 26-29, 2017

Promoting Health and Well-being

About the Conference
The 141st AAIDD Annual Meeting will provide researchers, clinicians, practitioners, managers, educators, policymakers, local, state and federal agencies, and advocates with cutting edge research, effective practices, and valuable information on important policy initiatives in complex times. The conference will:
  • Include thought-provoking plenary sessions concerning emerging issues and the complexities that these issues bring to people's lives and the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities.
  • Feature panel presentations, poster presentations, taskforce and special interest group meetings, and multiple networking opportunities for attendees to learn from one another as well as the presenters. 
  • Include select pre- and post-conference workshops that address relevant topics of interest in greater detail.
In addition, the conference will identify ways in which professionals can prepare themselves and their organizations to embrace the complexities brought on by ever-changing contexts in research, policy, practices and in people's lives.

AAIDD members have been leaders at the cutting edge of ground-breaking research, practice, and policy in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities for over a century. AAIDD continues to be the leading interdisciplinary professional organization in intellectual and developmental disabilities. The 141st annual meeting of the association will continue that long-established tradition. Our plenary sessions will focus on emerging and complex issues facing professionals from multiple disciplines whose work is focused on supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to be included in their communities as full participating citizens. The conference will create a forum for sharing expertise in the areas of research, practice, and policy relevant to promoting health, well-being and quality of life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
