Developmental Disability Day Celebrated at Oklahoma City Capitol

Having a disability is no reason for someone to be hindered from participating in their community. That’s why, this coming Wednesday, the Oklahoma State Capitol will be hosting a celebration in honor of Developmental Disability Day, which aims to recognize people who are intellectually challenged. The event will involve several leaders and dignitaries in the field of developmental disability, as well as people who experience different types of disabilities and their families.

The celebration will focus on raising awareness about the importance of providing a good life for people who are developmentally disabled. There will be talks and discussions about the goals of ‚ÄúReaching for a Good Life,” stressing the importance of finding ways to make these individuals a more involved sector of the community. The idea is to help them live independent lives while simultaneously maintaining a high quality of life.

Those interested in listening and participating in the celebration and awareness of developmental disability are encouraged to go to the Oklahoma Capitol on Wednesday, March 25, at 10:00am.
