University of Alabama's Intellectual Disabilities Participant Registry

Good afternoon! My name is Eric Cooks and I work with the University of Alabama’s Intellectual Disabilities Participant Registry ( Our program matches families that are interested in participating in research with researchers in the area of intellectual disability. Many times research is unable to proceed due to a lack of participants, and families often times are unsure how to get involved. Right now we have 300 families in 4 states in our program.
