Founded in 1951 and incorporated in 1956, AADD is one of the longest running agencies serving individuals with developmental disabilities and their families in Georgia. Our programs and services are focused in three key areas: Family Support Services, Employment Services and Community Engagement.

Who we serve

We serve individuals with a developmental disability from any age 3 throughout their lifetime and their families. We were founded and still are governed by parents of individuals with developmental disabilities. Some programs focus on specific geographic areas and others are available statewide.


How We Serve

AADD empowers families living with developmental disabilities to make informed choices and helps them build on their strengths to seek opportunities, resources and services for a meaningful life.

Family Support Services
Through a variety of services, programs, workshops and supports provided through our Family Outreach Services and Family Support Center,  we help families develop meaningful lives tailored  to their unique and individual situations.

Employment Services
AADD empowers individuals with developmental disabilities ages 18 through 30 to secure employment that fits their individual strengths and creates opportunities for a quality life.

Community Engagement
Our Community Engagement programs promote a better public understanding of developmental disabilities and foster inclusive communities in which individuals with developmental disabilities and their families can live, work and participate in a way that honors individual dignity.
