Looking for Authors

in Matthew Janicki, Info Blast

AADMD INFO BLAST - For AADMD Members and Friends


The AADMD is collaborating on a book project that will be published by Springer Publishing in 2018. The text, "Physical Health in Adults with Developmental Disabilities" is a reissue of a text first published in 2002. The publisher is looking for updated or new chapters that provide a tutorial on select health aspects and offers advice on clinical treatment or practices. Currently we are looking for authors (or co-authors) to develop chapters on epidemiology of medical conditions, sensory impairments and conditions, clinical phenotypes, neurological conditions, and endocrinological conditions. As the focus is on health conditions among adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, other topics of relevance will be considered. Chapter draft manuscript submission deadlines are October 1, 2017, with final manuscript submission due February 1, 2018. If interested, or know of someone who may be interested, please contact Dr. Vee Prasher (editor) at or me at
