CEC's Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) hosted the 9th International Conference on Mental Retardation, Autism and other Developmental Disabilities, in October 2004 at the Alexis Park Resort in Las Vegas. The biennial conference, provided hundreds of researchers and educators the opportunity to explore current research, topical issues and best practices relating to mental retardation, autism, and associated developmental disabilities.
Highlights of the conference included Featured Speaker Taylor Crowe, a self-advocate with autism, who shared his unique perspectives with attendees. Featured Speaker David Smith presented a thoughtful and often moving contemporary analysis of developmental disabilities to a packed house on the final day of the conference.
It’s not too early to start making plans to attend the 10th International Conference of the Division of Developmental Disabilities, tentatively scheduled for February 2007 ... in Hawaii.
