Las Trampas supports adults with developmental disabilities to discover their capabilities and to lead full lives in their home, at work, and in the community.

See Me for Me!–Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month 2018

welcome image

In 1987, President Ronald Reagan made a public proclamation that the month of March should be recognized as Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month (DDAM) to “increase public awareness of the needs and potential of Americans with developmental disabilities.” Since 1987, we have definitely seen public awareness of developmental disabilities grow! But we still see much to do. Here at Las Trampas, we support people with developmental disabilities to discover their capabilities and to lead full lives in their homes, at work, and in community, so we’re thrilled that this year the theme of DDAM is See Me for Me!

What does it mean to See Me for Me? It means focusing on inclusion and living life side by side with our neighbors of all capabilities. It means seeing  beyond someone’s disability to see them as a person with hopes, dreams, goals, and challenges, not just a person with developmental disabilities.

Each week we’ll focus on a different aspect of leading a full life–education, employment, community, and relationships. We hope you’ll enjoy these stories, share them, and maybe even share some of your own with us on our Facebook Page!
