Spring 2017

Dear friends and colleagues,

March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness MonthMarch is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, which provides an excellent opportunity to raise awareness about DD and share stories and experiences of people living with disabilities. In this issue, we highlight some of the Sonoran UCEDD’s projects that seek to expand the possibilities and enhance independence for people with DD across the lifespan. We also showcase other local, state and national activities and efforts that promote inclusion and awareness, as well as impact the lives of people with DD and their families. Please join us in the national campaign online, Life Side by Side, by sharing stories, photos and resources with the tag #DDawareness17 on social media!

As always, please let us know what you would like to see in future issues.

All the best,

Leslie J. Cohen
