The Institute for Disability Studies
The Institute for Disability Studies has been impacting Mississippians with disabilities and their families for over 40 years. IDS has worked to provide technical assistance, training, resources and supports for Mississippians with disabilities and their families. We like to think we are providing pathways to a better life for people of all ages—infants, toddlers, school-age children, youth, workers, parents, families and seniors.
