I am going to get a little personal on this blog about one of our favorite customers, the Institute on Human Development and Disability (IHDD) at the University of Georgia.
I have a cousin who was born with moderate to severe development and learning disorders. She was often teased, or worse, wholly ignored, particularly as she entered adulthood. That was until a professional trained at the IHDD took notice. She was offered training that was within her abilities and targeted support. She is now living a full, rewarding life in Tulsa, Oklahoma because she is able to work, contribute, and participate.
Working is a privilege. It allows us a measure self-sufficiency, dignity, and purpose. The Institute on Human Development and Disability understands the power of work in helping those with disabilities be a functioning part of our culture. They work tirelessly to improve the quality of life for those with disabilities, their families, and the community.
The IHDD is always seeking partners and people who believe in their mission. Their web-site indicates:
“If you believe in a world that includes everyone, a society that lets all work to their full capacity, and a system that won’t let children with disabilities grow up in institutions and nursing homes, you believe in the work of Institute on Human Development & Disability.”
We recently printed a bookmark insert that promotes their “Everyone Can Work” campaign.
We appreciate the Institute on Human Development and Disability and are honored to be their printer.
