Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

DDAM CoverPhoto Seafoam

In 1987, President Ronald Reagan made a public proclamation that the month of March should be recognized as Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month to “increase public awareness of the needs and potential of Americans with developmental disabilities. Though our mission remains largely the same, so much has changed since 1987. While we still aim to increase public awareness, our focus has shifted to the importance of inclusion and living life side by side. During this month, we want people to share their stories, photos, and resources far and wide to expand the conversation of inclusion and accessibility. This year’s theme is “See Me for Me!” To us, this means looking beyond someone’s disability and seeing them as a person and not just a person with a disability. (https://nacdd.org/ddam/).
