NJCDD’s Disability in Focus BLOG
Welcome to the NJCDD’s blog on important developmental disabilities news and views from across New Jersey and around the country.
With each new post, we’ll be following important news, legislation, and current events that affect people with developmental disabilities and their families. We’ll provide commentary on issues that matter and new trends in our communities. And, occasionally, we’ll invite guest contributors to provide their unique perspectives on a variety of topics important New Jersey’s DD community. Most importantly though, we’ll invite you, our readers, to join the conversation and share your views.
We hope you find the below entries informative and engaging…and we look forward to hearing from you!
