March is a special time to recognize the wonderful and unique people that we are blessed to serve.

“Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), a group made up of over 200 million people, representing every country, belief system, gender, and ethnicity, continue to be excluded and isolated from their peers in schools, workplaces and communities.  You can combat the hurtful and dehumanizing effects of exclusion.

Inclusion is a skill that each of us can learn and practice.  It builds togetherness through difference and community through adversity.  Make it a personal priority to see others, hear others and value others through inclusion.
