President Obama issues proclamation in recognition of National Disability Employment Awareness Month
President Obama issued a proclamation today recognizing October 2011 as National Disability Employment Awareness Month.
He states: “More than 20 years after the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act, individuals with disabilities, including injured veterans, are making immeasurable contributions to workplaces across our country. Unfortunately, the unemployment rate for people with disabilities remains too high -- nearly double the rate of people without disabilities -- and reversing this trend is crucial.”
“I urge all Americans to embrace the talents and skills that individuals with disabilities bring to our workplaces and communities and to promote the right to equal employment opportunity for all people.”
To read the full proclamation, visit the White House Office of the Press Secretary webpage.

Welcome to the Louisiana Developmental Disabilities Council’s website. We envision a system of services and supports in Louisiana which enable individuals with developmental disabilities to exercise self-determination, be independent, productive and integrated and included in all facets of community life. The Council’s mission is to advocate for and support people with developmental disabilities to exercise control over their lives and participate fully in the community.
The goal of the Developmental Disabilities Council is to effectively implement the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000 in Louisiana. All actions and efforts undertaken by the Council, either directly or through funded grant projects, are directed to advocacy, capacity building and systems change activities to affect real and meaningful reform of Louisiana’s system of services and supports to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
