Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
People with intellectual disabilities are some of the most vulnerable members of society, as many require ongoing support in order to participate in all aspects of their daily lives and society. Over the past few decades, advances in research and practice have led to significant improvements in our ability to meet the health and wellbeing, educational, home, and social needs of people with learning disabilities and their supporters. Vigilance is required in order to ensure that these advances continue to build and positively improve lives, particularly during and beyond this testing time, with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The aim of this Special Issue is to attract papers that present advances in research and/or practice for people with intellectual disabilities, and their supporters, that have particular relevance to building the evidence base during and beyond this testing time. We encourage and welcome submissions across a broad range of topics and study types.
