March is National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month (DDAM). Throughout the month we'll be celebrating the people League is privileged to serve by participating in the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities' Side-by-Side awareness campaign. The campaign will highlight community inclusion of people with developmental disabilities and illustrate their valuable contributions to workplaces, volunteer groups, schools and more.
An estimated 4.7 million Americans have an intellectual or developmental disability.
Disabilities like autism, down syndrome and cerebral palsy affect so many lives. Please take a moment to join the campaign by sharing a personal story or photo on NACDD's Facebook Page, or post to Twitter using the hashtag #SideBySide.
Together we can celebrate the remarkable potential of individuals with developmental diversities and lend encouragement to their many achievements.
