Director's Welcome Message

Welcome to the USC UCEDD at CHLA!


Founded on the pioneering spirit, dedication and vision of Dr. Richard Koch, MD, the USC UCEDD continues a rich tradition of supporting the full inclusion and self-determination of people with developmental disabilities.  Through clinical programs, community partners, government agencies and our faculty, staff, and clinicians, we continue to carry forward Dr. Koch’s vision of leadership in enhancing the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities.  We accomplish this through strengthening family-centered, culturally-competent services and systems that provide clinical care, technical assistance, research, training, dissemination and community outreach.  

You are invited to browse our website for descriptions of our many activities, resources and links to further your research.  I do hope you will find the information stimulating and helpful in supporting your individual processes, or agency, academic institution, and/or community organization efforts.

Our focus is to create systemic change which leads to a society that welcomes and includes all of its members. Through meaningful and authentic partnerships, we can achieve the best for those we serve!
