Welcome to CeDDR, the Centre for Disability and Development Research (CeDDR)

CeDDR is an international collaboration for programmatic research that is designed to build knowledge of childhood disability, the mechanisms and broader impact of impairment, its consequences over the lifecourse, and innovations in treatment that target these conditions. Covering aspects of basic and applied research, our work is dedicated to benefiting children with developmental impairments and chronic health conditions, and their families, through high impact research that influences practice and policy.

ACU’s key international institutional partners in this Centre are McMaster University’s CanChild Centre for Childhood Disability Research; Radboud University’s Behavioural Science Institute; The Center for Cerebral Palsy Research at Teachers College, Columbia University; and Jonkoping’s CHILD Research Centre.
