Congratulations to Dr. Laraine Glidden who served as the editor for a new APA handbook!
Glidden, L. M. (Ed.). (2021). American Psychological Association Handbook of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. Washington, D.C.: American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
Consisting of 2 volumes, this 2021 Handbook contains 38 chapters and was in process from its inception in late 2016 to its publication at the very beginning of 2021. Distinguished Professor Emerita Laraine Masters Glidden, faculty member in psychology and human development from 1976 to her retirement in 2012, oversaw its development. She selected three associate editors, and together they developed the table of contents and invited authors who were experts in their respective subfields of developmental disabilities.
