March is National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

In recognition of National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, the Association of Specialized Government and Cooperative Library Agencies (ASGCLA), a division of ALA, encourages you and your team to check out our free toolkit designed to help you create a more welcoming and accessible library environment for visitors who experience developmental, cognitive, and intellectual disabilities.

According to the National Association of Councils on Development Disabilities, over five million Americans are estimated to have a developmental disability. To learn what steps you can take to build a more inclusive library community, please visit the websites of the advocacy and educational organizations provided at the end of the toolkit. We also encourage you to visit the ASGCLA website at www.asgcladirect.org.
