In each state or territory, there is a Developmental Disabilities Network (DD Network) working together to meet the needs of individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) in their state to fulfill the mandates of the DD Act and its core values: self-determination, independence, productivity, integration and inclusion in all facets of the community.

A key goal for this blog is to foment a culture of encouragement for more inclusive engagement. Accessibility isn’t only a responsibility nor just a checklist—accessibility is the constant process of seeking to expand meaningful participation. We seek to document the progress and challenges of becoming more accessible and while sharing this goal of inclusivity.

This project is a partnership of the DD Network in Nevada, comprised of the Nevada Center for Excellence on Disabilities (NCED), Nevada Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities (NGCDD) and the Nevada Disability and Advocacy Law Center (NDALC) for the purpose of increasing the number of people knowledgeable about  universal, accessible and inclusive design to ensure equal access to information for all abilities.
