Michigan Developmental Disabilities Institute

The Institute's mission is to contribute to the development of inclusive communities and quality of life for people with disabilities and their families through a culturally-sensitive, statewide program of training and education, community support and services, research, and sharing of information. The Michigan Developmental Disabilities Institute is one of 67 University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) nationally.


MI-DDI wants to know what is most important for you and the State of Michigan so that we can meet the needs of Michigan's intellectual and developmental disability (I/DD) community. Learn more about how you can participate in our 2021 Needs Assessment.
