CTCDD: Message from the Chair

Message from the Chair

My name is James Hexter, and I am the Chair of the Connecticut Council on Developmental Disabilities. Thank you for visiting our website!


Our mission is to ensure people with developmental disabilities can build great lives and be fully included in the communities in which they choose to live. We do this by supporting efforts in three areas: advocacy, capacity building, and systems change. We are comprised of self-advocates, family members, and representatives from state and private agencies, collaborating together to work on the issues and policies that affect people with disabilities in our state.


Here you will find information on what the Council does, the initiatives we are working on, and applying for grants, among other things. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.



James Hexter

Chair, Connecticut Council on Developmental Disabilities
