Thank you for visiting the
Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Developmental Disabilities and Health (RRTCDD). We hope this website will give you useful information on health status, health access, and health behaviors of adults with I/DD, strategies to improve health and function among people with I/DD through health promotion interventions, and how to improve health care access through integrated care practices. In addition we have information on aging with developmental disabilities, disability friendly environments, and caregiver support.

Upcoming Training

We are offering HealthMatters Train the Trainer Certified Instructor Workshops this fall/winter at several locations throughout Illinois. Visit for more information.
