CDHD is a member of the Consortium for Idahoans with Disabilities (CID). Each year CID holds an annual event, Fred Riggers Disability Awareness Day, at the Capitol to bring awareness to disability services throughout the state.  

The CDHD provided the event coordination for the day, Tuesday February 21st, and the Assistive Technology project provided device demonstrations and a hands-on make and take session, of a low-cost tablet or phone stand.

Olivia Lebens brought CDHD trainees from Moscow, ID to the event. Mia Giglio, trainee, wrote the following about her experience. "I had the opportunity to travel to Boise for Disability Awareness Day at the Capitol building with two other trainees! While I was there, we were able to meet many great providers and key agencies from around the state that allow Idaho citizens with disabilities to reach their full potential and live their lives to the fullest! After a lot of handshakes and a very informative tour of the capitol building, we were able to watch the senate hearing on HB 41, for the ABLE legislation, which was passed after many wonderful, powerful speakers! Hearing about the lives of people with disabilities and their families was very moving, and it was wonderful to watch a piece of history take place. The joy in the room after ABLE Act passed was a once in a life-time experience, and I am incredibly thankful for the opportunity to witness. The day was full of a lot of information and a lot of fun! I am so happy I got to participate in such an important day in Idaho, and I thank CDHD for giving me opportunities like this throughout my time here. I cannot wait for more!"
