The Infant Development Program (IDP) is a family-centered, home-based, consultative program that serves children from birth to three years of age who have developmental disabilities or are at risk of developmental delays.

& Youth

Our quality programs support children and their families to develop understanding, acceptance, and respect for diversity. We provide a range of services including inclusive childcare and school-age programs, youth, leisure, and social programs, and children’s respite.


Adult Services supports adults with developmental disabilities as well as their families in Vancouver and Richmond. From day programs to respite services to 24/7 assisted living, our programs are designed to increase individuals’ involvement and contribution to the communities they live in.


Family Support Services is designed to provide information and guidance to families of those with developmental disabilities.

“I love working for DDA! The best part of my job is interacting with the individuals we support and staff teams. Every day is a new opportunity to learn and have fun. If you are passionate, we need you!  If you are caring to others, we need you!  After 30 years I can’t imagine working anywhere else. This career has changed my life in so many positive ways! We strive to be the best…come join us.”
