MIAMI — March is National Developmental Disability Awareness Month. The month was officially declared by former U.S. President Ronald Reagan in 1987, asking everyone to provide “encouragement and opportunities” to help people with developmental disabilities improve their lives. In commemoration, the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department’s Disability Services division, in its longstanding efforts to promote independence, inclusion and accessibility for people with disabilities, invites the community to attend these free adapted and inclusive special events:
