County: March named “Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month”

Citrus County, Florida-- The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners presented a Proclamation at their regular meeting on March 12, 2013 proclaiming the month of March as “Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month” in Citrus County.  To accept the proclamation was Troy Davidson, a Key Training Center client and Neale Brennan, Key Center Foundation.

Developmental disabilities affect more than seven-million American children, adults and their families.  Many individuals with developmental disabilities are achieving independence, productivity, and integration in their respective communities.  Individuals with these disabilities in conjunction with family members, advocacy groups, governmental agencies and service organizations are encouraging all citizens to realize that individuals with developmental disabilities should be afforded opportunities in the community, including full access to housing, employment, and recreational activities. 

The Board of County Commissioners recognizes the first step is changing attitudes towards individuals with developmental disabilities is public awareness, which is why they wanted to have this proclamation.
