Developmental Disability Awareness Month

Classroom Bulletin Board Contest

2018 Theme: Developmental Disabilities Awareness: Together We Have No Limits

Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month is a perfect opportunity to educate students about the spectrum of abilities. For example, some disabilities are visible (a person who uses a wheelchair or crutches to walk), while other disabilities may not be easily recognized or seen by the eye (cognitive impairments that affect the way a person speaks, learns, or interacts with others).

Each year, The Arc of New Jersey hosts a Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month outreach event at The Statehouse in Trenton. The theme of this year’s event and design contest is “Developmental Disabilities Awareness: Together We Have No Limits”. Students in grades 3 - 12 are invited to design a bulletin board or video that incorporates the theme of this year’s campaign and illustrates the students’ acceptance of all people.
