UCEDD? Never heard of it? Here’s why they are VITAL to our community.

UCEDD stands for University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, which is part of the Association of University Centers on Disabilities.

P.S. The reason there is an extra C in the graphic is because it belongs to the Cincinnati UCEDD, but because it’s an excellent visual, we went with it 😆

What Did you know that the VCU School of Education’s Partnership for People with Disabilities proudly represents Virginia as its very own UCEDD? But what does that even mean, right!?!?

Let's break it down!

Fun fact: There are 68 UCEDDs across the U.S. with at least one in every state and territory. We serve as vital hubs for sharing disability-related information between communities and universities; offering training, services, research, and more.

For PPD, being a UCEDD means leading the charge in innovation, advocacy, and empowerment for people with disabilities and their families. From groundbreaking research to hands-on training, our mission is to create a world that's more inclusive and accessible for everyone. 🌍💖

Whether you're a parent seeking support, a professional in search of resources, or simply someone who champions inclusivity, the Partnership for People with Disabilities is here for you! Let's join forces to celebrate diversity, break down barriers, and foster a world where everyone can thrive! 💖✨
