Call For Research Posters
The Center for START Services is inviting submissions for proposals for the 2020 START National Training Institute Poster Session taking place in Austin, Texas on May 4, 2020. At least one submission is required from START programs and all members of the START Network are encouraged to participate. Poster content should be research based and focus on practices, tools or interventions that promote positive outcomes for individuals with IDD and behavioral health needs. Preference will be given to posters that focus on this years’ theme, mindfulness, as well as those that utilize SIRS data and relate directly to START model values and principles.

Posters will be judged by a committee of experts in the field of MHIDD. First, second, and third place winners will be announced at the START awards luncheon on Tuesday afternoon. Poster Proposal Deadline: Friday March 20, 2020.
