A University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD)
The Center for Human Development (CHD) is a University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities in Education, Research, and Service (UCEDDs) authorized by the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000. There are 67 UCEDDs, at least one in every state and territory, that form an Association of UCEDDs (AUCD.org). Since CHD is the only UCEDD in Alaska, we serve the entire state.

Health Disparities Needs Assessment
The UAA Center for Human Development has been contracted by the State of Alaska Division of Public Health to conduct a needs assessment for a CDC grant regarding health disparities faced by people with disabilities. We are inviting support staff of people with disabilities and health care providers to complete a survey because we want to learn about their experience supporting and working people with disabilities. The information provided will be used to inform health care services for people with disabilities.
