Each March, we have a special chance to celebrate and uplift people with disabilities across our community and highlight their diverse experiences. Visit our new stories webpage to see our new TV PSAs and a range of compelling stories about people with developmental disabilities.
This month is an important opportunity to spread awareness of our shared humanity, the many ways people with developmental disabilities enrich our communities, and the challenges we still face to realizing a truly inclusive society.
Help us raise awareness!
Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as we share facts, stories, and ways to get involved throughout the month. Say hi in the comments on one of our posts! If you are a person with a disability, post something about yourself on your social media – share something that makes you unique, your dreams for the future, or what you wish people understood better about people with developmental disabilities. Don’t forget to tag us and use the hashtags #DDawareness2023 and #DDAM2023 in your post!
If you are a friend or family member of a person with a disability, share something about them that you love or makes you proud. And point people to our stories hub so they can lean more.
We all want a more inclusive and kind future. It starts by understanding each other better. This is our month to help people understand developmental disabilities!
