Minor in Developmental Disabilities

Developmental disabilities encompass a broad spectrum of disabling conditions that can profoundly diminish the quality of life of those impacted. A well prepared workforce is critical to ensure that those who contend with a disabling challenge receive support such that daily life can be meaningful and purposeful.

The minor in Developmental Disabilities is intended to prepare students for careers working within the delivery system established to provide service to children and youth who are disabled, including aspects related to service delivery, program management/leadership, and advocacy. As a minor program, it will complement major degree programs by offering content and experiences specific to entering the developmental disabilities workforce.
