Disability Awareness Month
In 1987, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed that March should be recognized as Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. Since then, the mission of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month has expanded to emphasize not only awareness, but the importance of inclusion and living life side by side. This year’s theme is “See Me for Me!” with the goal of looking beyond an individual’s disability and seeing him or her as a person and not just as a person with a disability. Join The Arc of Central Alabama as we shine a light on developmental and intellectual disabilities over the next few weeks!
