About Us

The Developmental Disabilities Resources for Healthcare Providers website is a collaboration of California-based information and programs on developmental disabilities. It is funded by the California Department of Developmental Services and coordinated by the Center for Health Improvement (CHI), a prevention-focused health policy center.

The primary goal of this website is to improve the health of persons with developmental disabilities in California. To this end, the website is designed to assist physicians and other healthcare providers in caring for persons with developmental disabilities. It is also designed to support consumers with developmental disabilities and their families in making informed health care decisions. The information in this site includes medical care information for specific syndromes and related issues, health provider educational opportunities, speaking opportunities, publications, and links to selected websites. This critical information is not otherwise readily accessible in one location.
