DDTI marks 50 years of advocating for people with disabilities

Since its founding in 1963, the School of Social Work’s Developmental Disabilities Training Institute (DDTI) has worked to ensure the well-being and inclusion of people with intellectual, developmental, and co-occurring disabilities.

Much of the institute’s focus has centered on providing training and technical assistance to the professionals and paraprofessionals serving the state’s I/DD population. The mission: To help foster and support the transition of individuals from institutions back into their own communities. While the agency’s efforts have impacted thousands of North Carolinians over the last 50 years, including in securing employment and in accessing daily personal care services, a lot of work remains, reflected Chris Egan, DDTI clinical program director.
