Unleashing Disability Health: How the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities Empowers Individuals with Disabilities to Thrive

Nearly one in four adults in the United States has a disability, and the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) is dedicated to improving their health and wellbeing through various programs. These programs aim to increase access to preventive care and health promotion services for individuals with disabilities, as well as ensure that athletes with disabilities receive necessary healthcare screenings.

The NCBDDD has been instrumental in improving the care of people with muscular dystrophy by providing standard treatment recommendations informed by research and findings. Similarly, babies born with spina bifida benefit from enhanced care throughout their lifetime thanks to data on treatments and surgical care provided by the NCBDDD.

Individuals with congenital heart defects (CHD) also benefit greatly from the work of the NCBDDD. Nearly 2.5 million people in the United States with a CHD are able to live longer and healthier lives thanks to improved care. Healthcare providers are able to access data on potential health challenges and treatment needs, helping to improve outcomes for individuals with CHD.
