March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, a time to create awareness about developmental disabilities, teach the importance of inclusion within every aspect of life, and to share the stories of individuals with a disability to show that a successful life is possible! The Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council has chosen Supports Matter as the theme for 2019.
To kick-off the month, DD Awareness and Advocacy Day, funded by the Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council, was held on March 5, 2019 at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus. You can watch the live-stream video of the event here: Ohio Channel.
