Each March, the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD), partners with Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) and National Disability Rights Network (NDRN) to create a social media campaign that highlights the many ways in which people with and without disabilities come together to form strong, diverse communities. Here at The Arc of Delaware County, we have lots of fun jumping on board with this important event.
From Facebook posts to fun parties and celebrations, we raise awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all areas of community life. We help our communities be aware of the barriers that people still sometimes face in connecting to the communities in which they live, especially in the areas of education, employment and community living.
We are your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers. We invite you to connect to us, get to know us, and even better, share with us your stories of personal relationships with someone with an Intellectual/Developmental Disability and how your life is better with them in it.
Community Living Skills in Walton loves to have fun with a theme week. Each day of the week, whoever wants to dresses in a chosen theme. It’s always a fun time. Here are a few of flannel day and the staff just having fun. Having fun is kind of a common thing around here. 🙂
