                                    Fee $30 (includes continental breakfast)

 Strengthening the Professional Role in Inclusion

While there has been measurable positive engagement of faith communities in the lives of people with I/DD, many possibilities remain. This forum will invite discussion seeking to clarify the purpose and mission of the AAIDD Religion and Spirituality interest group, and create a framework for future initiatives. Key questions will include

  • What is the unique position and potential of this professional interest group?
  • Where are the needs for future study, publication, or resources? 
  • How might we better leverage and communicate the work that has been done?
  • What is the potential of religion and spirituality groups relative to ethical and public policy issues affecting people with I/DD? Is there a role for this interest group?
