Researchers, carers, and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities meet and debate in a huge Amsterdam-based event, 5-8 July
This Amsterdam-based online conference of the International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual and Developmental Disability (IASSIDD) will have over 800 prominent researchers from across Europe and the world meet to discuss the latest research on topics ranging from the huge impact of COVID-19 on these populations to everyday issues like education, work and family relationships. They will be joined in presentations, discussions and debates by parents, carers, policymakers and disabled people themselves.
There will be a symposium with presentations from the following INHEF members:
Three papers on different aspects of the DCU Ability Project.
Two papers from the Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities (TCPID)
The ideas and practices being discussed at IASSIDD are of interest to anyone who works in fields like healthcare, care, disability support, education or family support—as well as to families and individuals who have a personal connection to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Please contact us for more information, and to arrange interviews with IASSIDD staff or presenters. The full conference programme is now available online.
