For 50 years, the people at Damar have led the way in the care for and understanding of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, seeking not just to offer state-of-the-art treatment but actually to generate new ideas and innovative approaches.

When that is your aim, you learn a lot … and you feel compelled to share your lessons so others can learn from them, too.

In this space, you’ll benefit from the insights we’ve gained by providing care and constantly seeking new answers to the challenges faced by people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and the people who care for them.
