Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

The National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD), the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) and the National Disability Rights Network (NDRN) are proud to present Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month 2017!

Our goal for this month is to create awareness about developmental disabilities, tell stories of people who live with a disability and show their lives.

Below, we have provided resources to help plan activities and for you to share across social media. We are always looking for more resources to add so if you have any stories, photos, videos or resources that you would like us to share, please send them to With the ongoing submissions of new resources, this page will be continuously updated so keep an eye out! Remember to use the hashtag #DDawareness17 throughout the month of March and in any other post about the campaign!
