The Institute on Human Development and Disability (IHDD) is one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive interdisciplinary research and training centers focusing on a wide array of developmental disabilities. More than 600 University of Washington faculty and staff members, as well as numerous doctoral and post-doctoral students, provide clinical services, interdisciplinary clinical and research training, technical assistance, and outreach training to community practitioners and community agencies. IHDD scientists and clinicians also conduct basic and applied research to generate new knowledge and disseminate information widely.

IHDD is one of the few centers in the country that encompasses two major programs, one focusing on research and the other on clinical services, training, and community outreach. This structure encourages strong connections between researchers and clinicians, and creates an important bridge between basic research and state-of-the-art clinical programs.
