Evidence-Based Policy


Welcome to the Evidence-Based Policy website! This website is part of a joint initiative of the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services and the Association of University Centers on Disabilities.

The Evidence-Based Policy Initiative is intended to maximize the extent to which sound research is integrated into policy and program decisions that affect the independence, inclusion, productivity, self-determination, health and well-being of individuals with developmental disabilities. We are pleased to have you visit this website.

Evidence: 1. "The data on which a conclusion or judgment may be made <glacial evidence of climatic change>.”

Webster’s II New College Dictionary
