Chapter Proposal – Autism, Neurodiversity, and Equity in Professional Preparation Programs

We are currently in the process of editing a forthcoming publication entitled Autism, Neurodiversity, and Equity in Professional Preparation Programs to be published by IGI Global, an international publisher of progressive academic research.

We would like to take this opportunity to cordially invite you to submit a chapter. We think that a chapter related to your previous work with IGI Global may be relevant to this book.  

This book project will examine professional preparation in autism and other types of neurodiversity from multiple perspectives. The book’s conceptual framework will include disability studies, neurodiversity, and intersections with diversity, equity, and inclusion across a variety of professional programs and disciplines. The intent of this book is for use within professional preparation programs to support the development of highly qualified professionals in supporting neurodiversity within their work. The editors hope to include chapters from multiple perspectives to present a diversity of thought around how to prepare professionals in autism. 

Please visit IGI Call for Chapters webpage for more details regarding this publication and to submit a chapter proposal by June 30, 2023

Please feel free to contact us with any questions. You may also share this Call for Proposals with other colleagues who may be interested. We look forward to reviewing your proposal!
