Greetings

Thank you for visiting the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Developmental Disabilities and Health (RRTCDD). We aim to give you information on health status, health access, and health behaviors of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), strategies to improve health and function among people with IDD through health promotion activities, and how to improve health care access through integrated care practices. In addition we have information on developmental disabilities across the lifespan, disability friendly environments, and caregiver support.

    The words people and organizations use demonstrates their perspective on an issue and provides a frame of reference for discussions. However, different fields, populations and organizations have varying degrees of understanding and use of the terminologies used by those they may want to do business with. Community Based Organizations (CBO)  looking to work with new integrated care/service systems such as Managed Long-Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) need to understand the common terminology used in those systems.
