News and Noteworthy
March is National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month
Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe has issued a proclamation declaring the month in Virginia, which you can read HERE. In an effort to spread awareness about developmental disabilities, the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD), Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD), and National Disability Rights Network (NDRN) are partnering to launch a social media campaign (Side-by-Side) to highlight the many ways in which people with and without developmental disabilities come together to form strong, diverse communities. The campaign seeks to raise awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all facets of community life, as well as awareness to the barriers that people with disabilities still sometimes face in connecting to community life.
