  • Established in 1969, the Staten Island Developmental Disabilities Council (SIDDC) assists in the planning, promotion and development of services for individuals with developmental disabilities and their family members.  An association of self-advocates, family members, service providers, professionals and other interested individuals. The SIDDC works together in an effort to ensure the quality of life for Staten Islanders with special needs by sharing relevant information and advocacy.
  • Monthly meetings are held at the Elizabeth A. Connelly Center (930 Willowbrook Road, Bldg. 41A) and include guest speakers/special presentations to keep members informed about current issues.  In addition, each of the SIDDC standing committees provide reports, which highlight the work and advocacy efforts being conducted for the purpose of educating and better informing all interested parties on issues and trends impacting individuals with developmental disabilities.

  • The SIDDC also ensures that public and elected officials are informed on the concerns and needs of the people we represent through quarterly Legislative Information Exchange and an annual Legislative Breakfast.  A Family Resource and Transition Fair is held each year, which provides a forum for relevant information regarding available supports and services and development in the field.
