In this chapter, we summarize the contributions to this volume and to the evolving field of developmental research on intellectual disability (ID). The developmental theory and methodology reviewed in this volume reflect a level of precision and sophistication that could not have been imagined in our previous volumes from 1990 and 1998. These advances have led to an increasingly nuanced understanding of syndrome-specific cognitive and social developmental pathways, gene-brain-behavior relations, and transactions of individuals with their families and environments.
