Every March, we raise awareness about inclusion and accessibility for individuals with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities/Delays and celebrate the impact of the I/DD community through Developmental Disabilities (DD) Awareness month!
Each year we work with community partners to spotlight the diverse abilities of people with disabilities. For 2023, Developmental Pathways and Access Gallery collaborated to create a campaign with the theme “Express Yourself!” to celebrate our community’s vibrance, creativity, and self-expression.
