In an effort to better represent the interests of individuals with the condition commonly known as mental retardation, in January 2007 the American Association on Mental Retardation (AAMR) officially changed its name to the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD). (For more information, see this press release on the name change and what it means for the intellectual disabilities community.)
This site is the response of the South Carolina chapter of AAIDD (formerly SCAAMR) to this name change. We've redefined our look, changed our name, and moved to a new domain (scaaidd.org). Here you will find news, information, and resources about serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in South Carolina. Follow the links above to find information about our organization, our annual conference, training sessions, our relationships with other organizations, and other resources. If you'd like to become a member of SCAAIDD, be sure to choose the "Membership" link below!
