The Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development (GUCCHD) is committed to ensuring people with disabilities, special health care or behavioral needs—as well as individuals who are experiencing risk factors such as poverty, homelessness or trauma—are served by a well-trained workforce. Creating future leaders, scholars, and providers to address the interests and needs of people with developmental disabilities across the lifespan is the driving force for all our educational programs.
Through a variety of formats, our Center provides exemplary workforce development on a number of topics including early childhood, developmental disabilities, mental health, advocacy, cultural and linguistic competence, and leadership.
Our multi-disciplinary programs are designed to meet the needs of state, tribal, and territorial leaders, as well as students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, service providers, and program administrators in the Washington DC metropolitan region, across the country and throughout the world.
The Center’s ongoing technical assistance, community and clinical services, and our applied research and evaluation contribute to the content expertise delivered through our workforce development.
