March is National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month
Since 1987, March has been designated National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. During the month, the many contributions people with developmental disabilities make to the community are celebrated and efforts are made to raise awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all facets of community life.
When President Reagan signed a proclamation officially declaring March as National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, he helped to reaffirm that "Americans are becoming increasingly aware that such disabilities need not keep individuals from realizing their full potential in school, at work or at home, as valued members of their families and of their communities."
