The mission of the Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND) is to assist individuals with developmental and other disabilities and their families by promoting and supporting full community inclusion, community membership, independence, productivity and social participation. WIND provides early intervention activities, training and technical assistance to professionals, research on disability issues and is home to the state assistive technology program and accessible instructional material coordinating center.  WIND is one of 67 University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD)in the United States. Each state now has at least one UCEDD; all UCEDDs are affiliated with universities and receive funding from the Administration on Developmental Disabilities, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. UCEDDs share the common university goals of teaching, research, and service, but have a specific interest in persons with disabilities, particularly developmental disabilities and broaden teaching, research and service goals beyond the campus to the community at large. 


The WIND Resource and Information Center is now closed to the public. If you have a specific project or need, materials may still be borrowed on a case by case basis. For more information or questions, please contact Sara DiRienzo at sdirienz@uwyo.edu or (307) 766-2561.

If you are looking for our assistive technology loan library, we are still open and lending! Visit the WATR website to get started or browse devices on WYAT4ALL.
