The Florida Developmental Disabilities Council is committed to advocating and promoting meaningful participation in all aspects of life for Floridians with developmental disabilities. We especially enjoy sharing some of the stories of success such as the Florida State College at Jacksonville, in collaboration with the Duval County and Nassau County School Districts Project Achieve. This project is designed to provide students with intellectual disabilities, ages 18-22, the support to pursue their post-secondary education at a college, specifically working on certification in the field of their choice.
