Delores Barr Weaver developed the idea for Connectable after attending an event which showcased the remarkable stories of local individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. At the event, she noted how often she heard the word “disabled” being used. She thought it was time to change the conversation, by focusing on what people with IDDs are able to bring to our community – such as hard work, friendship and acceptance of others.
Connectable is a campaign to enhance connections within the Northeast Florida community with people who have intellectual and developmental differences or IDDs. Learn more about the campaign and take the pledge to be connectable to people with intellectual and developmental differences.
