March 1, 2021 – Throughout the month of March, Blossom Hill staff and individuals participated in a few activities for Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month to help bring awareness and understanding of developmental disabilities.
In 1987, President Reagan officially declared March National Disabilities Awareness Month. Since then, each March, the campaign is led by the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD) and other partners across the country to create a social media campaign that highlights the many ways in which people with and without 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 of the barriers that people with disabilities still sometimes face in connecting to the communities in which they live.
