About The Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center

The Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center, part of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, is dedicated to understanding and improving the challenges faced by individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and/or behavioral health disorders as well as supporting their families.

Since 1970, our expert faculty and staff have conducted cutting-edge research, offered world-class education and training, and provided high quality services with the goal of enhancing the health, safety, and quality of life of people affected by IDD and NDD. Our comprehensive experience and expertise have established the Shriver Center as an international leader, devoted to supporting the full participation of people with disabilities in community life.


The Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center’s outstanding research, training, service, and clinical care programs are devoted to supporting, empowering, and including people with intellectual/developmental disabilities (IDD) and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) in the community.



As a national leader in the disability field since 1970, we work to promote inclusion, freedom, and equality for people with IDD and NDD. Our vision is that people with IDD and NDD have the right to reach their potential, determine and meet their own goals and needs, and be fully included in the community.   


To achieve our vision, we:

  • conduct research and translate scientific discoveries to improve the physical and mental health and the quality of life of people with IDD and NDD;
  • deliver unique and innovative educational programs that train educators, clinicians, scientists, people with disabilities, family members, and others who provide support to meet the needs of people with IDD and NDD;
  • develop leaders who will shape future research, training, and services in the disability field;
  • offer programs and services that are inclusive, person- and family-centered, culturally competent, evidence-based, and responsive to community needs; and
  • partner with local and national agencies and organizations on initiatives that benefit people with disabilities, their families, and others who provide needed support.
