Wyoming Institute for Disabilities

Welcome to WIND

The Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND) is a member of the national network of University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD). WIND works to assist individuals with developmental disabilities, their families, professionals, and University of Wyoming students through education, training, community services, and early intervention.

WIND envisions a Wyoming where all people can participate in everyday community life as they choose. Our commitment to be consumer driven allows us to fully realize the needs and values of all citizens with disabilities, especially developmental disabilities.

Mission

The mission of the Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND) is to assist individuals with developmental and other disabilities and their families by promoting and supporting full community inclusion, community membership, independence, productivity and social participation. WIND provides early intervention activities, training and technical assistance to professionals, research on disability issues and is home to the state assistive technology program and accessible instructional material coordinating center.

UCEDD

WIND is one of 67 University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD)in the United States. Each state now has at least one UCEDD; all UCEDDs are affiliated with universities and receive funding from the Administration on Developmental Disabilities, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. UCEDDs share the common university goals of teaching, research, and service, but have a specific interest in persons with disabilities, particularly developmental disabilities and broaden teaching, research and service goals beyond the campus to the community at large. For more information, see this UCEDD brochure.
