Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month 2024

Through Art and Stories... Experience a World of Opportunities

Having pride in yourself or something you've done is an essential part of a happy life. See what self-advocates have to say in our new video: DD Proud

To celebrate Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, we asked self-advocates to send us artwork about things they love to do and of which they are proud. Thank you to the talented artists that trusted us to represent them.

CDD Executive Director Kristin Proud and CDD Caucus Chair Shameka Andrews were recently interviewed by New York NOW host Shantel Destra for an upcoming episode highlighting DD Awareness Month and the work of the CDD. The show will air on WHMT (Capital Region's PBS station) on Friday, March 22 from 7:30- 8:00 PM and will be available to watch online on their website.
