Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

 

PIERRE, S.D. - Governor Kristi Noem has proclaimed March Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) Awareness Month in South Dakota.

 

IDD Awareness Month raises awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all areas of community life, as well as awareness to the barriers that people with disabilities still sometimes face in connecting to the communities in which they live.

 

Themes throughout March will highlight education, employment and community living.

This statewide observation coincides with National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, a national awareness campaign that takes place each March.
