Friendships, families, jobs, schools, congregations – these connections make us a community. Connectable is a new campaign to enhance connections within the Northeast Florida community with people who have intellectual and developmental differences or IDDs. Join the campaign by making the pledge and discovering how you can connect.
I pledge for the support of my IDD daughter and those like her that are special in ways beyond measure.
I take this pledge because I believe people with IDDs are just as capable as anyone else and deserve their rightful place in society.
I believe everyone deserves a proper chance in life. If the only thing standing in someone’s way is my attitude, I will do my best to get out of their way and extend a hand toward them.
I pledge because people who have IDD deserve to have a large impact in our society. I encourage all businesses to pursue these talented individuals, not for sympathy but to help achieve their goals. We need to focus on the individual person and not the disability.
To try to return just a little bit of the love those with IDDs share with us so freely.
Because we all deserve to be accepted. We all bring gifts to our communities.
I have been working with individuals with IDD as a behavior analyst and I am interested in making connections in a more casual environment!
