Welcome to the Kansas Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (KIDDRC) web site.
The mission of the KIDDRC is to support high quality basic and applied research relevant to the causes and prevention of intellectual and developmental disabilities. We also support research aimed at the prevention and remediation of some of the many secondary conditions associated with intellectual and developmental disabilities, such as difficulty in language acquisition and behavior problems. For over four decades our Center, in partnership with the Eunice K.
