In honor of March as National Developmental Disabilities Awareness month, we wanted to gain some insight about the needs of this special group of people.
Did you know that more than 5 million Americans have a developmental disability, including 167,000 in North Carolina? We sure didn’t! Providing care and love to these individuals and families in Wake County is the Tammy Lynn Center for Developmental Disabilities.
Articulon visited the Tammy Lynn Center this week to spend time with the students, staff and teachers. We experienced the interactive adaptive playground, joined the classroom and donated 10 craft kits filled with art supplies and bubbles.
Programs and services at the center include:
- Early Intervention
- Day Services
- Therapy Services
- Respite Care Program
- Residential Services
