a half a century, JFK Partners has been a leader in advancing care and
treatment for children and adults with developmental disabilities through
training, education, clinical services, research, policy, and advocacy. Our
multifaceted work includes the training of personnel from a number of
disciplines and service systems, who provide family and person-centered
services and supports. Our faculty design, implement, evaluate, and disseminate
intervention programs which continually incorporate new research findings. We
extend our deep appreciation to our community and university partners in these
endeavors and we welcome you to join us as we celebrate 50 years.
