Come share your thoughts and ideas July 24, 2019 from 5:30 pm until 6:30 pm.

Join us for a community conversation for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities and their families. Students with disabilities are at a higher risk for school discipline than other students. African-American/Black and Latino(a) students with disabilities are at an even higher risk. The Colorado Developmental Disabilities Council (CDDC) knows that families, students and adults with disabilities need support, resources and advocacy tools to deal with these challenges. We need your input to better understand what resources would be the most helpful. Click here for complete information.

Necesitamos su opinión para comprender major cuales recursos serían los más útiles. Para más información


The Colorado Developmental Disabilities Council appreciates the Olmstead Proclamation by Governor Polis designating June 22, 2019 as "Commitment to Disability Community Living Day" to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Supreme Court's Olmstead Decision.  This decision is consistent with the Council's federal mandate to advocate for systems change consistent with people being educated, working and living in the most integrated setting.  Thank you Governor Polis!
