The Beach Center on Disability is a multi-disciplinary research and training center committed to making a significant and sustainable positive difference in the quality of life of individuals and families affected by disability and the professionals who support them.

Program Description

Since our founding in 1988, we have

  • conducted research,
  • carried out training and technical assistance, and
  • provided international, national, state, regional, and local service.

We have carried out these three activities in collaboration with families who have members with disabilities, individuals with disabilities, the professionals and policy leaders who serve families and individuals, and members of the communities in which the families and individuals live, all to enhance the quality of life of families and individuals affected by disability.

The website provides online support, information, and a Family Research Toolkit.
