2 Books to Read this March
As we re-emerge from winter as well as the pandemic, it's important to remember that strong communities are made up of diverse individuals who come from different backgrounds, have different skillsets, and may even have different abilities.
The National (U.S.A.) Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD) recognizes March as the National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month to encourage and raise awareness for the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities throughout our communities. Not everyone experiences barrier-free environments, so it's important to be accommodating and understanding of different struggles people may be experiencing.
To help your kids understand what developmental disabilities are and how they can impact our nine essential skills, we have found the following books you can read with them.
