March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, a time to recognize the many contributions made by youth and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and raise awareness of the challenges that remain for people with developmental disabilities.
“At Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health, we strongly believe individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities can make a meaningful and positive difference in their homes, schools and communities, and should be given the same opportunities for inclusion, access and equality as those without disabilities,” said Devereux Vice President of Operations Adult Services Stephen Bruce, M.Ed., BCBA.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that about one in six children in the U.S., between the ages of 3 and 17, have one or more developmental disabilities (e.g., autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities, learning disorders). According to a recent study, the percentage of children in this age group diagnosed with developmental disabilities increased from 16.2 percent in 2009 to 17.8 percent in 2017.
