Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Developmental Disabilities and Health

Thank you for visiting the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Developmental Disabilities and Health (RRTCDD). We aim to give you information on health status, health access, and health behaviors of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), strategies to improve health and function among people with IDD through health promotion activities, and how to improve health care access through integrated care practices. In addition we have information on developmental disabilities across the lifespan, disability friendly environments, and caregiver support.
