2018 DD Awareness Month Resource Guide/Calendar

This Resource Guide/Calendar explains the weekly subthemes that NACDD has created to guide conversations.

The Resource Guide will be updated throughout the month as new resources are submitted daily, so don’t worry if you don’t see your submission yet. Anyone and everyone is welcome to share these resources across social media, but you should not feel limited to these resources or to any set schedule.
