Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month - 2014

Release date: 03/18/2014
Sponsored by: Board of Commissioners

An estimated 1 to 2 percent of the population has a developmental disability. One out of ten families is directly affected by developmental disabilities. As public awareness helps promote acceptance and understanding, and decrease prejudice and misconceptions, the month of March has been designated Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month.

Therefore, the Department of Health and Human Services requests that the Washington County Board of Commissioners designate March 2014 as "Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month" in Washington County.


Read the proclamation.
