Sherri Larson Named an IASSIDD Fellow
In May, the International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IASSIDD) named Sherri Larson of ICI’s Research and Training Center on Community Living (RTC) as a Fellow for her outstanding contributions to the field of intellectual disabilities. Larson travels to Australia to be honored at the IASSIDD General Assembly and Awards Ceremony in Melbourne. “I am honored and pleased to have been recognized as an IASSID Fellow,” says Larson. “In August, I will be attending my fifth World Congress in Australia. I really enjoy the consistently high quality research and networking opportunities this international conference provides for scholars who are conducting research on strategies to improve the lives of people with intellectual or developmental disabilities.” Larson, who has worked at ICI since 1988, has been RTC Research Director for 12 years and directs the Residential Information Systems Project (RISP) and the Supporting Individuals and Families Information Systems Project (FISP), two nationally-recognized RTC research projects on the living conditions of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. She has been principal or co-principal investigator on 45 other sponsored projects. She is also an editorial consultant for the Journal of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, and has a long list of published journal articles, book chapters, books, reports and briefs.
