March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

Join us Thursday, March 9th for Dr. Laura Lee McIntyre’s virtual pediatric grand rounds presentation entitled, Working Together: Leveraging Parents to Improve Behavioral Health Outcomes in Children with Developmental Disabilities.

Join us all month on our social media accounts to celebrate the many ways in which people with and without disabilities can come together to form strong, diverse communities through concepts like allyship, raise awareness of barriers to inclusion such as ableism, and share resources that improve the lives of people with disabilities.

Four Wheeling Through Life

Jan Staehely

Jan Staehely  -  UCEDD Staff, Communication Consultant and Blogger, writes about her life in her blog Four Wheeling Through Life. "I have a disability called Cerebral Palsy. Since all four of my limbs, plus my speech is affected by the disability, doctors say that I am severely disabled. However, if you ask me, I will tell you that there are people living with more complex disabilities than me."
