Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

March is national Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month
National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month is a chance to spread awareness, advocacy and inclusion throughout the community.  All throughout March we celebrate individuals with Developmental Disabilities and make people aware of their abilities and accomplishments.

It’s not about celebrating disabilities; it’s about celebrating abilities.

In 1987 President Ronald Reagan proclaimed March “Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month.” The movement of the seventies and early eighties had laid the foundation for significant social change, and the presidential proclamation called upon Americans to provide the “encouragement and opportunities” necessary for people with developmental disabilities to reach their potential.
