Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

 

March is National 

Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month 

The Arc invites you to help raise awareness about people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD)

 

 

 

What should you do? Simply make plans to go out somewhere in public on Sunday, March 29. That's all. Just plan a day out and about with friends and family or by yourself enjoying the things you like to do. And, in the process, help raise awareness and generate some conversation about people with intellectual and developmental disabilities during Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. This one-day movement will serve to harness our collective power to gain allies, foster understanding, dispel myths and encourage people without disabilities to recognize that we're not so different after all.
