The Future of Families Living with Developmental Disabilities

Alphachimp will facilitate a one-day design session for researchers, clinicians, staff, and community members from The Vanderbilt Kennedy Center which serves persons with developmental disabilities and their families, as well as persons with all types of disabilities, including those whose disabilities occur after age 22.

The event will focus on the broad question: How can we improve the lives of individuals and families living with developmental disabilities?

What is a developmental disability?

A developmental disability is a condition that is significant and ongoing, begins before age 22, and substantially limits functioning in daily activities of living.

Examples of developmental disabilities include autism, brain injury, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, fetal alcohol syndrome, intellectual disabilities, Prader-Willi syndrome, spina bifida, and Williams syndrome.
