Developmental Disability Awareness Month

Introduction and Resources

Introduction and Resources

March is National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. During this month, we recognize positive contributions people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) make in society every day. National Developmental Disability Awareness Month is an opportunity to raise awareness about the challenges facing individuals with IDD and their families.. It is also a chance to promote respect, foster understanding and encourage inclusivity.

I encourage you to utilize the resources found below to aid you in your advocacy efforts.

Thank you for putting IDD awareness front and center this year!
