...for a study about the social behaviors of adolescents and adults with and without intellectual/developmental disabilities. Parents/guardians of a child who is 12 years and older are invited to complete a short online survey about their child's social behaviors. These questions will ask about the child's background, ways the child interacts with others, and whether the child displays any behaviors that might make him/her more vulnerable to social victimization.

Powerful video series shows the pursuit of life's dreams and goals.
The Developmental Disabilities Institute's award-winning Possibilities series of videos focuses on the lives and accomplishments of individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Each 4-7 minute video highlights the journeys of different individuals, along with their family and friends, and illustrates the lives possible for all people as they mature, become independent, and pursue their life's dreams and goals.
The purpose of the Possibilities series is to present a vision of how individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities and their families can lead the lives that they wish to lead, without barriers and in the direction they truly intend to go. The hope is that these films are viewed and shared by anyone looking to explore all of the possibilities that life has to offer!
We have featured “Emily” here on our page. You may click on this link to the Wayne State DDI and view the rest of the videos in the series.
