Disability Resources

  • The University of Oregon Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) works to improve the quality of life for all persons with developmental disabilities and their families. They provide training, technical assistance, interdiciplinary training, dissemination, networking and model development. These activities function in a culturally competent fashion, to meet the multiple needs of individuals and their families from diverse racial, cultural, ethnic and linguistic groups.
  • Opportunity Foundation of Central Oregon (OFCO) is a non-profit organization with the mission of providing life improvement services to Central Oregonians with disabilities. With OFCO's support, adults with disabilities in Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties work toward their individual goals for meaningful work, a comfortable home and the opportunity to be an active part of the community.
  • The Quality Mall collects and disseminates information related to or useful in promoting quality of life for persons with developmental disabilities. It has a vast amount of information on products and services for people with developmental disabilities.
  • Inclusion Daily Express is a national disability-related news site. You can subscribe to their newsletter.
  • The Person-Centered Planning Education Site offers resources and information around person-centered planning processes. Person-centered planning involves the development of a "toolbox" of methods and resources that enable people with disability labels to choose their own paths to success; the planners simply help them to figure out where they want to go and how best to get there.
