HELEN: The Journal of Human Exceptionality
“The place between your comfort zone and your dream is where life takes place.”
– Helen Keller
Named in honor of Helen Keller, HELEN is the official journal of the AADMD (American Academy of Developmental Medicine & Dentistry), created to help enrich the lives of all people with disabilities. Representing the many champions in the field of disability, HELEN provides high-caliber content created by patients, parents and caregivers, clinicians, educators, and other professionals.
It is the only journal endorsed by the three national interdisciplinary IDD (intellectual and developmental disabilities) organizations — AADMD (American Academy of Developmental Medicine & Dentistry), AADM (American Academy of Developmental Medicine), and AADD (American Academy of Developmental Dentistry).
HELEN seeks to spread its outreach far beyond the IDD community to serve the larger audience of people touched by special needs, and it is committed to improving the quality of their healthcare throughout their health lifespan.
