Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month
Awareness Month. A developmental disability is a group of conditions that have caused an impairment in someone’s areas of language, learning, physicality, or behavior like Autism or Down syndrome.
About 17% of children in the U.S. have at least one developmental disability — including kids in the foster care system. With the proper support, many individuals can live normal lives. That’s why we provide valuable resources for foster families to help set everyone up for success.
The Childwelfare and National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities are great resources to learn more about this topic.
