The Vanderbilt Kennedy Center (VKC) works with and for people with disabilities and their family members, service providers and advocates, researchers and policy makers. It is among only a few centers nationwide to include a University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, a Eunice Kennedy Shriver Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center, a Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities Training Program, and a Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Tip Sheets are free downloadables for individuals and families with and without disabilities, service providers, students and trainees, and anyone interested in learning more about disabilities and disability-related topics. They always promote (directly or indirectly) the values of independence, self-determination, community integration, and inclusion as best practice.
