IASSIDD sponsors international congresses once every four years. These international meetings provide an exciting opportunity for presenting recent findings as well as keynote addresses about major advances in the biological, behavioral, and social sciences related to intellectual disabilities. These advances are also addressed in presentations concerned with progress in the provision of services and supports for persons with intellectual disabilities. The most recent Congress was held in Melbourne, Australia in August, 2016. The next World Congress will take place in Glasgow, Scotland in August, 2019.
Fellowship in IASSIDD is recognition by peers in the International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual Disabilities of outstanding contributions in the field of intellectual disabilities. This recognition comes at varying points of a member's career and outstanding activities are as diverse as contributions to our greater knowledge of intellectual disabilities through research, public service, teaching or education, practice and significant participation in the Association.
