Did you know that March has been Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month since 1987?
Over 24 years ago, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation urging the nation that people with developmental disabilities deserved “the encouragement and opportunities they need to lead productive lives and to achieve their full potential.”
The State Council on Developmental Disabilities (SCDD) works with our local and national partners to highlight inspiring stories and to raise awareness in the community.
This campaign is a great opportunity to reach out beyond our everyday network and connect with neighbors, businesses, schools, and elected officials.
We encourage everyone to share their own story, and use #DDawareness2021 in your social media posts.
