National Disability Employment Awareness Month

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM).

Here are some resources to help you celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness month, especially the Invite your Legislator to work event, which can be celebrated any day during the Month of October.  Please consider having your local government have a proclamation or sending a letter to your local paper. 

Please let us know if these are helpful and what you or your organization did for NDEAM.  For more information please contact the Missouri DD Council and Chaz Nickolaus at cnickolaus@moddcouncil.org or 800-500-7878.

With your help we can make this a great event to shine the light on how employees with disabilities make their communities better places for everyone
