Everyone Wins When Everyone’s Included

The theme for this year’s National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month—See me for me!—continues to challenge all of us to look beyond labels and see people for who they are. Friends, classmates, neighbors, customers, colleagues. Bright, creative, funny, thoughtful, persistent. Change makers, doers, go-getters. People who support others, lend a hand, give back, offer encouragement.

To celebrate all the wonderful ways life is made richer when everyone is included, we asked people of all abilities what inclusion means to them.

Join the movement this month by sharing your stories and photos featuring people with developmental disabilities working, participating and contributing to their communities and our world.

On Facebook and Twitter, you can post or tweet photos, videos or stories, share or retweet from other people and pages and by using the hashtag #DDAwareness18. The purpose of a hashtag is to connect conversations regardless of the original poster. Get a Facebook cover for your own page here.
