General Information

Sprout is a private, non-profit organization, founded in 1979, offering innovative programming related to the field of developmental disabilities.

Our travel and recreation programs are dedicated to helping individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities grow through challenging and safe travel experiences. Based in New York City, our programs are available to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and the agencies that serve them throughout the United States.

Through our film programs we invite you to experience film and video related to the field of developmental disabilities. People with developmental disabilities as subjects and performers remain marginalized in the media. By creating and presenting films of artistry and intellect, we hope to reinforce accurate portrayals of people with developmental disabilities and expose the general public to important issues facing this population.
