All About Developmental Disabilities (AADD), Georgia’s preeminent provider of support services for families living with developmental disabilities, has added three new members to its Board of Directors: education consultant Rachael Barron, attorney Kedrick Eily, and executive Stephen Fodroczi.

The new board members are:

  • Education consultant/academic coach Rachael Barron is the owner of W3 Connections, Inc., a company providing instruction in the area of executive functioning and study skills to students and teachers. She graduated from AADD’s Partners in Policymaking program in 2004 and lives in Buckhead.

  • Attorney Kedrick Eily has practiced law since 2004. He is currently with the international law firm, Greenberg Traurig, where he handles business litigation and corporate matters. He lives in Mableton.

  • Executive Stephen Fodroczi works for Verizon Enterprise Solutions as Solutions Executive, Security, where he is responsible for security sales in the Southeast. He will also serve as the chairman of AADD’s IT committee and lives in Marietta.

“We’re excited about the experience, passion and perspective these partners bring to the table for AADD,” said AADD Board President Judith Moen Stanley. “They bring the skills and dedication we need to support Georgians with developmental disabilities.”

About All About Developmental DisabilitiesFounded in 1956, All About Developmental Disabilities (AADD) is an Atlanta-based non-profit organization dedicated to providing family support, advocacy and training opportunities for individuals and families living with developmental disabilities.

Developmental disabilities are defined as severe chronic intellectual and/or physical disabilities that limit three or more critical functional abilities. Examples include Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, autism disorders, fetal alcohol disorders and intellectual disabilities. These disabilities manifest early in life (before age 22) and last a lifetime.

Georgia relies on a disjointed system of services and support that cannot be sustained long-term. Economic uncertainties are reducing funding support, even as the number of people in need increases.  AADD offers a range of services focusing on Family Support, Public Policy and Advocacy and Community Engagement.  For more information, go to www.AADD.org or call us at (404) 881-9777.
