People with Disabilities

The Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities (TCDD), believes that everyone should be able to choose where they live and who lives with them, work at a regular job with competitive pay, go to their neighborhood school with other students their own age, and have opportunities to play and have social interactions with friends they choose. This includes the 475,265 people with developmental disabilities in the state of Texas.
 
Along with TCDD, SER is committed to creating change so that each individual is able to enjoy these rights, and to be fully included in their own communities and exercise control over their own lives.
 
 
Over the past 3 years, SER has constantly evaluated, revised and fine-tuned the agency’s existing TCDD Leadership and Basic Advocacy skills training program, believing that in these tough economic times, it is crucial now more than ever, to utilize resources effectively and utilize the power of community to help those in need. Individuals with disabilities comprise nearly 20 percent of Harris County’s population, according to the 2005-2009 American Community Survey. When individuals with disabilities and the support networks that surround them lack the resources or skills to communicate, advocate and impact change with social and government organizations, they are often left behind. Through the use of information videos, we can empower and reach more individuals in urban and rural areas, where accessibility is often a barrier for clients.
