We affect policy and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families and their supports through education, advocacy and partnerships.
Welcome to the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council where members and staff play a pivotal role in making things happen through advocacy, education and innovation.
Since our inception we have leveraged over one hundred million dollars to make global changes in systems and services that impact children and adults who live with intellectual and developmental disabilities such as autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, spina bifida and others as defined within Florida statute 393. Learn about what we do, how we do it, and join our efforts.
Individuals with I/DD and their families are asking lawmakers to Pay Fair for My Care!
Direct Support Professionals are a lifeline for people living with developmental disabilities. They not only give them a seat at the table but help them to survive and thrive.
With Pay Fair for My Care, FDDC has created ways that Florida’s most vulnerable citizens can educate the Florida Legislature on why they rely on direct support workers.
