WH Eddings Special Needs Training, Inc.
Who We Are
W.H. Eddings Special Needs Training, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We are a network of individuals, groups, and organization members who work to improve the lives of those with special needs and other disadvantaged populations by providing support services, education, training and advocacy resources. We believe that disabilities and disadvantages are only differences that deserve attention and dedicated development. Every person should be celebrated for who they are and everyone should receive the support they need to grow and develop.
Our organization was established in 2009 as an informal network of individuals and parents with special needs children, who shared a deep interest in community-based training. Founder Elyce Eddings named the organization in honor of her father, W.H. Eddings. Since our launch, W.H. Eddings Special Needs Training has grown and expanded its reach. Our membership has expanded to include all types of underserved and disadvantaged populations.

Eddings Special Needs Training works to improve the lives of those with special needs and other disadvantaged populations by providing support services, education, training, and advocacy resources. We operate programs for children and adults with disabilities, and we partner with groups that serve diverse disadvantaged populations.
