Who we are

The USC UCEDD is a collective of researchers, clinicians, and educators from diverse cultural backgrounds recognized as leaders in their fields of expertise. The interdisciplinary and collaborative environment of the USC UCEDD empowers our dedicated professionals and maximizes our ability to influence policy at all levels. As passionate advocates and community leaders, USC UCEDD faculty and staff seek to make impactful changes that improve the lives of people with disabilities and their families.

Our faculty are affiliated with the Keck School of Medicine of USC and provide interdisciplinary training, education and technical assistance to service providers and the community. USC faculty also conduct research and serve as advocates in the public arena to strengthen systems and services for individuals and families impacted by special developmental, behavioral and/or complex health care needs.
