OHSU

University                  Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities

The OHSU UCEDD has a 45-year history of celebrating and improving the lives of people with disabilities throughout Oregon

University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) are organizations, located at universities across the world that focus on improving the lives of people with disabilities and their families.  Through education, service, research and outreach activities, we work to be instrumental in changing policy, providing training, and educating the public about major disability issues.

The OHSU UCEDD was one of the first UCEDD's created, and celebrates a nearly 45-year history in Oregon.  We are instrumental in developing and leading disability research and outreach efforts to improve the lives of people with disabilities and their families across the State of Oregon.

Four Wheeling Through Life

Jan StaehelyThis blog follows my life. I have a disability called Cerebral Palsy. Since all four of my limbs, plus my speech is affected by the disability, doctors say that I am severely disabled. However, if you ask me, I will tell you that there are people living with more complex disabilities than me.
