Columbus, OH December 3, 2021- 1 st Choice Family Services (1CFS), dedicated to
providing essential and uncompromising direct support professional services to those
with developmental disabilities in Ohio, supports the United Nation’s International
Disability Day on Friday, December 3 by committing to a continued focus on an
important theme of inclusion for those with developmental disabilities.
The International Day of Disabled Persons was established in 1992 by the United
Nations and aims to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all
spheres of society and development. Today, the world population is over 7 billion people
and more than one billion people live with some form of disability; 80 per cent live in
Accessibility and inclusion are fundamental rights recognized by the United Nations for all
people while the organization seeks to enable persons with disabilities to live independently
and participate fully in all aspects of life and development.
1 st Choice promotes those objectives and its direct support professionals are true advocates
for those with developmental disabilities. There is an ever-increasing and critical need for
more DSPs to serve this population – they are crucial partners who promote inclusion for
those with developmental disabilities.
