CCBDD Celebrates DD Awareness Month
The year 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the creation of Ohio's County Boards of Developmental Disabilities by the Ohio General Assembly in 1967. To honor this milestone, CCBDD is joining a statewide campaign, "Always There."
The Always There campaign reflects the continuity of support, promotion of opportunity and history of partnership county boards have offered to people with developmental disabilities and their families throughout the past, in the present and in the future.
We are also celebrating Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month this March. During this time CCBDD encourages you to focus on peoples' abilities and similarities rather than differences, and encourages everyone to welcome people with developmental disabilities into their communities. Many new opportunities are emerging in this spirit throughout the state, including community-based employment options and residential opportunities that more fully integrate people with disabilities.
