Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

This month is the perfect opportunity to take more steps towards inclusion and to improve the lives of people with disabilities.

Since 1987, when President Ronald Reagan proclaimed March as Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, Americans have recognized this month as the perfect opportunity to take more steps toward inclusion. This year, we honor the work done to improve the lives of people with disabilities; however, many challenges remain for them.

Expanding the conversation

Today, we are beyond the talk about the fundamental rights of persons with developmental disabilities. We have had positive and significant changes in the last decades, and it is time to highlight the incredible ways in which people with and without disabilities have come together to form diverse and inclusive communities.

Recent studies have shown that over six million people and almost one in every six children in the United States has one of these types of developmental disabilities:

  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Intellectual disability
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
  • Learning disabilities (including hearing loss or vision impairment)
autism spectrum

What can you do to help?

Every year, the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD) holds a campaign to communicate the importance of inclusion and accessibility. To expand the conversation, we encourage individuals to share their stories on social media, photos, or videos showing the improvements in education, employment, and community living.

Since 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act has made it illegal to discriminate against people with disabilities. That’s why inclusive employment practices and policies have been set in every workplace.

At Signature Health Services, we seize the opportunity to educate all of our community members about the challenges people with disabilities face daily and teach the relevance of inclusion in every aspect of life. As a result, we strive to meet the unique requirements of the individuals we serve, providing them with compassionate and dedicated care.
