International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
IASSIDD’s mission is to promote the development of new knowledge, research and other scholarly activities, as well as the application of knowledge, to improve the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families and those who support them. The aims are first to enable international collaboration and leadership in research; second, to encourage a perspective that takes into account the interests, human rights and fundamental freedoms of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families and those who support them throughout the world; third, to stimulate high quality and innovative research encompassing interdisciplinary interests and methodological diversity and to fourth, to engage in worldwide exchange of evidence-based knowledge with relevant stakeholders. Through IASSIDD’s international standing and capacity, the organisation is ideally placed to achieve this aim.
Special Interest Research Groups (SIRGs) provide opportunities for international and multidisciplinary networking within the same area of interest, creating opportunities to share information, develop initiatives, find new colleagues and increase visibility to newcomers in the field.
If you submit an abstract, you will be asked to select a SIRG that best represents your submission. For further information click here.
