IDD Awareness Day at the Colorado Capitol typically takes place every February or March, and on this day, we work to create awareness amongst legislators about the challenges and opportunities facing people with IDD in Colorado and the community-based system that supports them. We also honor Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) around the state at our IDD Awareness Day luncheon. This event typically draws over 500 people, including more than half of the general assembly. We also have keynote speakers including IDD advocates, parents, DSPs, and legislators.
