A World of Possibilities

March 31, 2024 | Comments Off on A World of Possibilities

March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. As a part of their celebration of this month and this year’s theme, ‘A World of Possibilities’, the New York State Council on Developmental Disabilities (CDD) opened itself up for submissions from individuals and organizations around the state for their digital art gallery, featuring activities the artist(s) with a Developmental Disability enjoys or something they would like to do now or in the future.
The IAHD Champions decided to create a visual art piece to send to the CDD. In collaboration with the IAHD Art Department, they painted, traced, and colored over a span of a few weeks to make the magnificent piece seen here.

Their submission ultimately made it into the slideshow of the all the art the CDD received! Jump to 5:48 in the video below to see the Champions’ work.

Congratulations to all of our Champions for this accomplishment and thank you to all those who helped them complete this project!

Come One, Come All to St. Mary’s Circus!

Summer fun began early for IAHD day program participants– namely, those attending St. Mary’s in the Bronx– when their very own big-top circus came to town! For two days, they played carnival games for prizes, ate classic festival foods like cotton candy, and got to see some classic circus performers, like clowns and jugglers. On its second day, members of the other IAHD day habilitation programs stopped by to experience the fun for themselves. Check out the gallery below to see more!

The Luck of the Irish at IAHD

IAHD day programs and residences were seeing green from celebrating St. Patrick’s Day! Read on to hear about the fun and mischief that occurred.

🍀Just about everyone at our Tarrytown day program was wearing some shade of green for the holiday. There wasn’t gold at the end of the rainbow here, but instead a party with all the shamrocks and desserts imaginable!

🌈The festivities continued in the Bronx, as our St. Mary’s day program had a dance party of their own!

🍺Just like the residents of our Leland home in the photo below, we hope you and your inner Irishman had a very happy St. Patrick’s Day!

All of us here at IAHD are so lucky to have built and foster the incredible community that we have today!
