Welcome to the Intellectual Disabilities Communication Lab (IDCL) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign! The IDCL aims to better understand how individuals with different types of intellectual disability learn to communicate. Our overarching goal is to characterize the development of skills that support everyday communication in these individuals so that we can identify optimal strategies for supporting their social and academic success.
