Vision and Mission

Vision

Support all Tennesseans with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live fulfilling and rewarding lives.

Mission

Through person centered practices, persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities experience optimal health as a cornerstone for quality of life.

DIDD provides leadership and direction in a service delivery system that offers a continuum of services and supports so that persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities will be gainfully employed to their maximum ability, live in quality homes, develop meaningful relationships, and are part of the community in which they live.

DIDD is purposefully and systematically structured so that people are supported, quality services are designed and managed, and evidence-based practice is used to continue to improve services provided to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
