http:// - Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (CIDD). The CIDD provides an array of clinical services for children and adults who have or are at risk for developmental disabilities.

Our interdisciplinary faculty and teams offer assessment, consultation, and treatment options for individuals with behavioral, learning, and developmental needs across the lifespan. Emphasis is on individuals and their families who have intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, traumatic brain injuries, cerebral palsy, and genetic or medical conditions which impact development, health, and independent living. Since 1980, The Exceptional Children’s Assistance Center (ECAC) has grown from an all volunteer parent organization to a full service Parent Training & Information Center serving families in North Carolina with more than 25 full and part-time staff and offices throughout NC. All services are provided at no charge to parents and families. Disability Rights Disability Rights North Carolina (DRNC) is an independent, private not for profit organization
designated by the Governor on July 1, 2007 to ensure the rights of all state citizens with disabilities through individual advocacy and system change.

DRNC (formerly Carolina Legal Assistance) is part of a national system of federally mandated independent disability agencies. While we receive federal money, DRNC is completely independent of state government. We are also independent from the disability service system in order to be free of any conflicts of interests, which would undermine our capacity to advocate vigorously on behalf of the human and legal rights of people with disabilities.
