Zeph Attends White House Observance of Anniversary of Disabilities Assistance Act

Lucille Zeph, an associate professor of education and director of the Center for Community Inclusion and Disability Studies at the University of Maine, attended the White House’s observance of the 50th anniversary of the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act.

The event was held Nov. 15 to offer those involved in the intellectual and developmental disability community an opportunity to review past accomplishments, examine current challenges and consider the future of disability policy, according to “The White House Blog.”

President Kennedy signed the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act into law in 1963.
