CDCI aims to carry out research informed by the disability community, including disability self-advocates and family advocates

The research team at CDCI gathers input from our community partners, then take action based on that input. We do research to understand how to create more accessible, inclusive, and diverse spaces for people with disabilities to live, learn, work, and play.

UVM DD Researchers Directory

We are proud to host a directory of researchers at UVM whose scope of work includes developmental disabilities. Members of our DD Researchers Network span across the university. The goal of our network is to connect researchers across campus and fields of study, promoting collaboration and encouraging new opportunities.

If you would like to be added to this directory or know other UVM faculty who are engaged in research pertaining to children, youth, or adults with developmental disabilities, please contact us.
