Welcome to our new and improved news brief format. We are excited to use this format which will enable us to get you information more quickly and frequently about Strong Center for Developmental Disabilities, our University Center of Excellence in Developmental Disabilities. We will be keeping you up to date on our activities, as well as providing you with information you can use about intellectual and developmental disabilities. This will complement the information you can get on our Facebook page, and let us know if there is something specific you would like to read about!
