"Spirit of Inclusion!" Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

Monday, March 16, 2020


March 1 marks the first day of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month (DDAM). The Iowa Developmental Disabilities Council, in partnership with Iowans with Disabilities in Action, has created a campaign entitled “The Spirit of Inclusion.” This campaign aims to create awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all areas of community life as well as the barriers that people with disabilities still sometimes face in their communities.


“The Spirit of Inclusion” campaign highlights the many ways in which people with and without disabilities come together to form strong, diverse communities. Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month creates the opportunity for everyone to spread stories and share resources highlighting all of the excellent work being done.
