Project description: People with developmental disabilities experience significant barriers when attempting to access health and wellness activities. Many times, information and services that promote health and wellness are not designed to consider their preferences, needs and disabilities. The Ohio DD Council will support a project that will provide information and best practices on how individuals with developmental disabilities can increase their physical activity and improve their health through recreation.
