The 29th Annual Development Disabilities Awareness Day (DD Day!!) is coming soon!!
Celebrating 29 years!!

On Thursday, May 18th, 2017, the 29th Annual Developmental Disabilities Awareness Day will be held at The Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls in Niagara Falls, NY.
Professionals from many different area agencies that specialize in services for people with developmental disabilities and similar health related industries will be on hand to provide guidance, literature, and general information about services that the organizations or businesses provide.

The convention, also commonly known as DDDAY!!, has long been a staple of the WNY disability community, bringing together local and regional agencies, industry connected vendors and suppliers, direct support professionals and the individuals that all of these groups support. The conference is the largest one of its kind in the United States and has been growing bigger and more sophisticated with every year.

For more information or to register visit the www.ddday.org and https://dddayofficialblog.wordpress.com/ .

Last year, we lost a long-time DDDay friend, Glenn Griffin. Glenn loved performing at the conference every year. This year, we are proud to dedicate the performance space, in Glenn's honor. We hope you will join us tomorrow in the Glenn Griffin Memorial Performance Area, located in the Cataract Room, to listen to some talented performers and to celebrate our friend. #DDDAY2017

Are you driving to DDDay? Then we've got good news for you!! Thanks to the hard work and generosity of the Conference and Event Center, parking in the city lots adjacent to the convention center is only $5! You must mention "DDDay" to the parking attendant, when you arrive! Please also note - the street parking around the Conference and Event Center is now METERED and MONITORED by Niagara Falls Police. So be sure to put adequate funds in the meter (cash/credit). Lastly, parking at the CASINO is AT YOUR OWN RISK. The casino parking lot is not a city lot and is in no way affiliated with DDDay. See you next week!!

Are you taking NFTA Paratransit to DDDay 2017? If so, please call to schedule your rides EARLY! Last year, a number of folks waited until the day before to schedule their trips for DDDay and they were very disappointed to find the Paratransit phone number busy all afternoon! So plan ahead and book early! We will see you next week at DDDay 2017!!
