Mission Statement

At the Kansas University Center on Developmental Disabilities (KUCDD), our mission is to enhance the quality of life, self-determination, and inclusion of Kansans with developmental disabilities and their families through research, training, technical assistance, and community service activities.

Ongoing Projects

The purpose of this study is to gain knowledge about the functioning of individuals with ASD through follow-up assessments of SEED 1-2 participants. This study will evaluate the reliability of childhood measures of intellectual status by comparing SEED participants’ current functioning (aged 8 to 22) with their abilities when they were preschoolers. These data will be used to examine factors that affect the stability of intellectual status, and its ability to predict transition outcomes.
