Mission Statement

At the Rose F. Kennedy (RFK) UCEDD, our research and evaluation aims to improve the health, functioning, and community inclusion of persons with developmental disabilities. With a foundation in the multidisciplinary Children’s Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center (CERC), projects are grounded in clinical experience. Persons with developmental disabilities help design, implement, and develop projects.

Our research and evaluation portfolio spans clinical, community, and policy initiatives. This breadth supports a focus on the social determinants of health.
