All About Developmental Disabilities (AADD) believes in empowering families living with developmental disabilities to make informed choices and helps them build on their strengths to seek opportunities, resources and services. We provide family support services, public policy and advocacy, and community engagement programs.
With more than 55 years of serving the community, AADD is one of the longest serving organizations in metro Atlanta and Georgia. We have produced other great organizations such as the Bobby Dodd Institute and Nobis Works. We have over 600 graduates of our Partners in Policymaking acting as advocates at the capital and in their communities. Each year we engage hundreds of people in our Conversations that Matter events and in our community trainings.
Our mission is to create lifelong support, education and opportunities for children, adults and families living with developmental disabilities. We believe in personal empowerment, family stability and community participation for those living with disabilities. We partner with individuals, family members, advocates, state and elected officials and other nonprofit organizations to make sure individuals with developmental disabilities have futures with full of options and opportunities.
