DD Awareness Month - March 2013
"Look Beyond" is the theme for Developmental Disabilities (DD) Awareness Month 2013. Starlight Programs and other related organizations celebrate DD Awareness Month in March and invite you to consider the true meaning of this year's theme, "Look Beyond." Statewide, and across the nation, organizations devoted to serving individuals with developmental disabilities are planning special events to raise public awareness of the many abilities people have, regardless of disability.
"Look Beyond" encourages people to understand that when people with disabilities are welcomed into local neighborhoods, workplaces, houses of worship, and schools everyone wins. During DD Awareness Month, we encourage everyone to learn more about people in this community who have a developmental disability and recognize that we all have talents and abilities that we can offer to make our community a better place to live. Get acquainted with someone with a developmental disability and learn that everyone has something to offer, and when we are all together, our communities are stronger, we accomplish more and everyone wins!
