About Us

The UCEDD is part of The Association of University Centers on Disabilities

Our mission is to be of assistance in improving the quality of life for Oregonians and all persons with developmental disabilities and their families.
To accomplish this, we provide:

  • Training
  • Technical Assistance
  • Interdisciplinary Training
  • Dissemination
  • Networking
  • Model Development
  • To respond effectively, in a culturally competent fashion, to the multiple needs of individuals and their families from diverse racial, cultural, ethnic and linguistic groups.

We are in the College of Education at the University of Oregon and perform coordination and management functions for the Center on Human Development (CHD).
People of all ages are involved in our programs, services, and research. These activities involve preschool and school-age children, as well as youth and adults.
