Choose To Include All Year Long!

March is recognized by innumerable individuals with disabilities, provider organizations, advocates, and other supporters as Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month.

It is a month to share inspiring stories of achievement and advancement, while remembering that the work to include those with disabilities is never done.
