March is Intellectual Disability Awareness Month!

In 1987, President Ronald Reagan signed a presidential proclamation designating March as National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. Recently, a law passed changed the wording to Intellectual Disability Awareness Month.

This year, Gov. Tom Wolf signed a proclamation declaring March Intellectual Disability Awareness Month in Pennsylvania.

The 1987 proclamation urges everyone to offer encouragement and the opportunities that individuals with intellectual disabilities need to lead productive lives to achieve their full potential.

The IHRS is dedicated to providing premier residential services and promoting the social, psychological and educational well-being of individuals with developmental disabilities.

The IHRS also thanks each of our employees for their daily contributions to our clients lives and for your hard work.

Between 4.6  and 7.7 million Americans live with intellectual disabilities.

Examples of an intellectual disability include Down Syndrome and Autism. Examples of a psychiatric disability/mental illness include: Anxiety disorders; Bipolar disorder; and Schizophrenia

You can get involved in Intellectual Disability Awareness Month by spreading the word, educating yourself and others. and contacting your local, state, and federal legislators to gain their support in providing services and support to individuals.
