Over 175,000 hard copies are distributed county-wide through schools, pediatric offices, markets, child-serving organizations, and at community events. The Guide is also featured online with articles shared with other local publications.

Each March, the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities partners with the Association for University Centers on Disabilities and National Disability Rights Network to create a social media campaign that highlights the many ways in which people with and without disabilities come together to form strong, diverse communities.
The campaign seeks to raise awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all areas of community life, as well as awareness of the barriers that people with disabilities still sometimes face in connecting to the communities in which they live.
Developmental disabilities include disabilities such as cerebral palsy, autism, muscular dystrophy, Down syndrome, or fetal alcohol spectrum disorder and affect a person’s growth and/or cognition.
The figures show as of 2017, about 1 in 6 children are identified to have some type of developmental disability. But people shouldn’t have to be worried or alarmed if someone has a developmental disability. They can usually live fulfilling lives as long as they have the proper supports.
The CSC continues to support providers and the families they serve through the distribution of PPE and other resources. Agencies needing PPE and Family Resource Guides should contact Andrew Leone or Danielle Bachelder to arrange pick-up.
