The mission of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center is to advance local, national and international efforts to improve the quality of life for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and their families.

To that end, we carry out research to understand environmental and biological processes that influence behavioral development.

In parallel and in collaboration, we carry out IDD-relevant programs of technology and information dissemination, education and training, technical assistance, and clinical service.
