Congresswoman Beatty Recognizes Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

Mar 22, 2019

During the month of March, like-minded organizations, advocates, and stakeholders mark Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month by banding together to help raise awareness of Americans with developmental disabilities.

“At a time when nearly one in six American children will be diagnosed with a developmental disability during their lifetime, it is important to remember that living with a disability does not mean inability,” U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) said. “That is why this Developmental Disability Awareness Month and all year long, I encourage my constituents to join me in recognizing the amazing contributions Americans living with developmental disabilities have made to our past, present, and future.”

To learn more about Developmental Awareness Month, please visit the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities website. Also, be sure to join in the conversation online by using the hashtag #DDAwareness19 throughout the month.
