The Institute on Disabilities, located on the main campus of Temple University in Philadelphia, celebrates 35 years as Pennsylvania's University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities. In keeping with its proud history of working to change systems so people can live, learn, work, worship, and play in communities of their choice, the Institute is the coordinating and support entity of the state-wide Partnership. This office supplies technical assistance to create written, audio, and graphic materials to the Partners to ensure training curricula are available for all audiences. Arrangements and accommodations are made through this office to ensure trainings are accessible to all participants. And, perhaps, most importantly, activities of the Partnership agencies are coordinated through the Institute to ensure the state-wide trainings offered to people with disabilities, professionals, and family members are comprehensive and consistent.
