Our Focus Areas

We build capacity by encouraging collaboration between public health partners and AUCD’s Network Centers in every state and territory. We work together with our partners to address health disparities for people who have a disability.

We’re currently focusing on Access to Healthcare, Developmental Monitoring and Screening, Emergency Preparedness, Nutrition and Healthy Weight, Sexual and Reproductive Health, and Wellness and Mental Health.

Access to Healthcare

AUCD and its national network strive to support the critical role that healthcare providers play in serving everyone in the community – including people who have a disability.

Developmental Monitoring and Screening

We work to increase awareness of monitoring developmental milestones. Developmental monitoring and screening identifies early signs of developmental disabilities and delays that may be related to factors like genetics or exposures like Zika, alcohol, or opioids.

Sexual and Reproductive Health

We provide resources on a wide range of topics including dating, healthy relationships, sexual orientation, and sexual health for individuals with disabilities, parents, guardians, family members, professionals, and educators.
