Rhode Island Developmental Disabilities Network
Disability is a natural part of the human experience that does not diminish the right of individuals with developmental disabilities to live independently, to exert control and choice over their own lives, and to fully participate in and contribute to their communities through full integration and inclusion in the economic, political, social, cultural, and educational mainstream of society.
Rhode Island’s Developmental Disabilities Network partners believe that given the opportunity, people with developmental disabilities can defy the odds that appear to be stacked against them and lead fulfilling lives in spite of their limitations.
Who We Are
