these trained clinicians determine if the child meets the criteria for one or more of the developmental disabilities that the addm network tracks. researchers should submit their proposals using the research application form (doc, 180 kb) research application form (rtf, 355 kb) or can arrange to discuss their research idea by contacting the relevant service area:Child safety: research-csyfcp@communities. changes in the occurrence of asd and other developmental disabilities over time. proposal parental support in the education of children with visual impairment.
