Caregiver Staffing

Heather Waddell is the new Executive Director of the Aiken Tri-Development Center after nearly 20 years of service in different roles with the agency.

Part of her focus is to find caring employees who will provide, promote and coordinate community services in Aiken County for individuals with autism, head and spinal cord injuries, and intellectual disabilities.

The ATDC mission is to maximize independence, safeguard and support human rights and dignity, and achieve community inclusion to provide education and resources to the public to help in the understanding and prevention of autism, head and spinal cord injuries, and intellectual disabilities. Besides referring good caregivers, business leaders are asked to help with vocational, social, recreational, and religious opportunities.

Responsibility is taught, shared, and expected. Physical and psychological needs are met. Communities and citizens see themselves as competent and are willing to become involved in the lives of people with disabilities.

Our vision is that the citizens and communities will realize that they have the capacity to befriend, care about, work alongside, and learn with and from people with disabilities.
