The University of Oregon Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) in the College of Education assists in improving the quality of life for all persons with developmental disabilities and their families. The UCEDD is part of a national network of 67 university-based centers that share a vision for a nation in which all Americans, including Americans with disabilities, participate fully in their communities. The UCEED performs coordination and management functions for the College of Education’s Center on Human Development (CHD).
The broad spectrum of CHD-UCEDD research, development, and service-related activities serve populations of all ages from preschool and school-age children to youth and adults and their families from diverse racial, cultural, ethnic and linguistic backgrounds. UCEDD programs provide training, technical assistance, interdisciplinary training, dissemination, networking and model development for:
- regional, state, and district educational and clinical services
- the families of children and individuals with disability
