As we begin the month of March, it’s an important time to remember that it’s Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month! Every March the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD) partners with the Association for University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) and the National Disabilities Rights Network (NDRN) to create a campaign for social media that aims to showcase the myriad of ways that those with and without disabilities unite to form strong and diverse communities. The purpose of this campaign is “to raise awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all areas of community life, as well as awareness to the barriers that people with disabilities still sometimes face in connecting to the communities in which they live.”
