DDA Guiding Values Video

This new video from the DDA is worth sharing!

“After years of working with our community partners to develop Guiding Values for supporting people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, we handed the mic to people who matter the most—those with lived experience. We asked them what these values mean to them, and this is what they had to say.”
