What if we were all valued?

The Maine Developmental Disabilities Council acts to effect positive change through advocacy, training, demonstration projects, and support for other inclusive and collaborative systemic change activities. The purpose of the MDDC, as required under the federal Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000, is to ensure that individuals with developmental disabilities and their families participate in the design of, and have access to needed community services, individualized supports, and other forms of assistance that promote self determination, independence, productivity, integration, and inclusion in all facets of family and community life.
