If you or a friend, co-worker, loved one or client has a developmental disability, this month is for you!
What You Can Do
Spread the word to your friends and family!
Developmental disability is a natural part of the human experience and affects about 45 million Americans and their families.
All people with developmental disabilities can be productive, contributing members of their communities!
Many people with developmental disabilities rely on publicly funded services and supports in order to fully participate in community life.
During times of economic decline, essential services and supports for people with developmental disabilities are often threatened.
The power of people with disabilities is strongest when their voices are united with each other and their friends, families and other allies.
Policy makers can only make good public policy when they hear from the people directly affected by their decisions!
