Wayne State receives $2.8 million grant from US Administration for Children and Families
Date:9/18/2012

DETROIT Michigan residents with disabilities, along with their families, can look forward to five more years of service from the Developmental Disabilities Institute (DDI) at Wayne State University.

The institute recently received a $2.8 million core grant from the U.S. Administration for Children and Families.

As a result, DDI will continue its mission of contributing to the development of inclusive communities and quality of life for people with disabilities and their families through a culturally sensitive, statewide program of interdisciplinary education, community support and services, research, and dissemination of knowledge and information to and about Michigan's disability community.

"We're delighted to receive this funding to continue to support Michigan's families and children with disabilities," said Barbara LeRoy, Ph.D., DDI director, "and we're delighted to be here at Wayne State."

DDI began in the 1960s at the University of Michigan and moved to WSU in 1983. Every five years DDI must reapply for its core funding, which it then leverages to secure other funding sources to support programs in areas such as schooling, employment and housing that serve people with disabilities from birth through retirement age.

Developmental disabilities are defined federally as occurring before age 22 and having lifelong implications. The core grant supports a big-picture plan, which identifies topics of community-based research to be addressed, using input from statewide survey results and taking into consideration actions by the governor or state task forces.

The institute also trains emerging professionals of all disciplines on campus who may have an interest in disability, including social workers, journalists, doctors, psychologists, special education teachers and mainstream teachers. It is one of 67 University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities nationwide and in U.S. possessions such as Gu
