Disability Inclusion Program (DIP)

Easterseals Colorado is thrilled to offer the Disability Inclusion Program (DIP) funded by Denver Human Services and the generosity of citizens of the city and county of Denver. As part of this program in partnership with Denver Human Services, Easterseals Colorado will offer the DIP into Disability Speaker Series and Disability Etiquette Trainings throughout the year. Based upon recommendations of a Needs Assessment, Easterseals Colorado has highlighted a desire among families to be more educated about supports and opportunities available for their loved ones with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), as well as, having a better understanding of the disability system and encouraging disability etiquette training in the community.
