Ribbons have long been used as a way to bring awareness and raise consciousness for a cause. Ribbons and disability awareness has evolved from brining awareness to various disability topics such as sensitivity, core information, inclusion and advocacy to including information in various formats including resources, activities and print information.

Below, you will find awareness ribbons for specific disabilities and the months they are recognized including the links. If you noticed that I missed any, please let me know.
