March is Developmental Disability (DD) Awareness Month
What’s Your Story?” is the theme for Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month 2016.
Frontier Community Services and other related organizations celebrate Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month in March, and invite you to consider the true meaning of this year’s theme,
“What’s Your Story?”
Statewide, and across the nation, organizations devoted to serving individuals with developmental disabilities are planning special events in March to raise public awareness of the many abilities people have, regardless of disability. “What’s Your Story” encourages people to get to know someone with a disability to better understand that we are all connected and alike in many ways.
During Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, people are encouraged to learn more about the people in this community who have a developmental disability and to recognize that all of us have talents and strengths that we can offer to make this a better place to live
