The Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center
The DDDC serves the needs of people with autism spectrum disorders, their families and their schools. As an ABA program, we use these principles to organize our delivery of services. We recognize our responsibility to work collaboratively with the families of the children and adults we serve, and with the agencies that fund their treatment. As a university-based program, our commitment includes the education of undergraduate and graduate students and the dissemination of knowledge through research, training, and consultative services. We also provide information about the treatment and education of people with autism spectrum disorders to the professional community and the general public.
DOORS - Helping Open "Doors" for Children and Adults with Autism
Douglass Organization for Occupational and Related Educational Services, Inc. ("DOORS") is a parent-run organization which provides funding for various social, educational, and recreational services for students of Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center ("DDDC"), located on the Douglass College campus of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. These programs are essential to the total growth of an individual with autism. Traditionally, however, these kinds of programs don't often receive funding from state or local agencies, so DOORS was founded to fill the funding gap. With expert advice from professionals in and outside the field of autism, DOORS helps fund programming for over 100 individuals attending the DDDC.
