Welcome to the Kansas Council on Developmental Disabilities (KCDD or Council). The Council’s mission is to empower individuals with I/DD and their families to lead systems change, build capacity, and advocate for inclusive, integrated, accessible communities where everyone belongs and thrives. KCDD serves people with intellectual and developmental disabilities through advocacy, public policy, and education.

The Council has up to twenty-three members appointed by the Governor and at least 60% of the members must be people with developmental disabilities or parents or guardians of children with developmental disabilities. From the 60% membership above, at least one-third of the appointees must be people with developmental disabilities or self-advocates.
