Georgia relies on a disjointed system of services and support that cannot be sustained long-term. Economic uncertainties are reducing funding support, even as the number of people in need increases. AADD helps to fill in the gap by offering a range of services focusing on Family Support, Employment and Community Engagement.
Developmental or intellectual disabilities are characterized by significant limitations both in intellectual functioning (reasoning, learning, problem solving) and in adaptive behavior (everyday social and practical skills). Examples include Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, Spina Bifida, autism disorders, fetal alcohol disorders and intellectual disabilities. These disabilities often manifest early in life (before age 22) and last a lifetime.
