LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - “Fully Included: Empowering Louisiana’s Disability Community is a new video series by the Louisiana Development Disabilities Council (LaDDC) that highlights the lives of the disabled community in our state.

The series features Louisiana residents with disabilities, along with disability self-advocates, parent advocates, and community and agency leaders. Each of them shares their stories, thoughts, and ideas about disability issues that affect them every day.

The first episode discusses the impact of LaDDC and the importance that stakeholders such as individuals with disabilities, family advocates, and agency representatives. As well as what they bring to the table for disability rights and inclusion.
