For the children and families we serve, Kennedy Krieger's role extends far beyond the clinic or classroom and directly into the communities where they live.

For that reason, we're committed to sharing our knowledge throughout our communities, across the country, and around the world. By increasing awareness and breaking down societal barriers, we believe that all people with developmental disabilities can achieve their potential. By offering a wide range of community-oriented programs, projects, and services, Kennedy Krieger can play an important and long-term role in their success.

The cornerstone of these efforts is the Maryland Center for Developmental Disabilities (MCDD) at Kennedy Krieger Institute. Through the Center's focus on professional training, community service, research, and information dissemination, we are working with our community partners to create opportunities and sustain change.
