The Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center
The DDDC exists to meet the needs of people with autism spectrum disorders and their families. As an ABA program we use these principles to organize our delivery of services. We recognize that it is our responsibility to work collaboratively with the families of the children and adults we serve and with the agencies that fund their treatment. As a university-based program our commitment includes the education of undergraduate and graduate students and the dissemination of knowledge through research training and consultative services. We also strive to provide information about the treatment and education of people with autism spectrum disorders to the entire professional community and to the general public. In addition we are committed to furthering the understanding of the nature and treatment of autism spectrum disorders through research.
