Welcome to the Center on Disabilities and Human Development (CDHD), Idaho's University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD). There are over 67 UCEDDs throughout the U.S. and its territories; each one associated with a university or college. Each UCEDD reflects the character of its host institution and home state. However, all UCEDDs strive, through education, outreach, research, and service to accomplish a shared vision that foresees a nation in which all Americans, including Americans with disabilities, participate fully in their communities.
