The Center for Accessibility recognized Developmental Disability Awareness Month in March by hosting an information table where visitors could read about the campaign and its history, as well as contribute by sharing thoughts on innovations that break down barriers for people with disabilities.

Every March, the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD) and its partners collaborate to observe Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. The social media campaign highlights the many ways in which people with and without disabilities come together to raise awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all aspects of community life, as well as awareness of the barriers that people with disabilities still face in connecting to the communities in which they live.

The 2022 theme, Worlds Imagined, focused on how the world is changing as we move through and beyond the pandemic. With this theme, NACDD highlights intersectionality and disability, as well as how people with intellectual disabilities and developmental disabilities are living longer and more productive lives than ever before.
