An activist for the developmentally disabled throughout Ohio and the U.S., I am pleased to announce that Kernacopia has been awarded the federally-funded 2012 Public Awareness Products and Activities Grant with the Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council (ODDC). Of all applications tabulated by a panel consisting of Council Members and Outside Peer Reviewers—who independently review and extensively discuss all submissions—Kernacopia scored an impressive 443 out of a possible 500.

Councils on Developmental Disabilities were created through the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act (DD Act) in 1970. There are 55 State Councils on Developmental Disabilities, one in each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Northern Marianas and American Somoa.


The mission of the ODDC is to create visions and to serve as an advocate for systemic changes. The ultimate goal of the Public Awareness Products and Activities project is to respond positively to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families as it is stated in Public Law.

The ODDC initiative began in 1972. Since 2008, Kernacopia has had the honor of collaborating with Council to change and influence both perceptions of and attitudes toward people with developmental disabilities and their families. Together, we develop a strategic plan to use existing data and develop informational materials that will serve to educate the public about how these insensitivities can adversely affect our society, and how to help implement a change for the positive.

Our passion and strength is creative problem solving. With great enthusiasm for the work with we do and a rich palette—made of multiple design styles, attention to detail and innovative spirit—we thrive on solving creative challenges with the ODDC team.

As a result of this enjoyable relationship, our horizons have been broadened, our friendships diversified and the collective impact for the people we serve is significant.

“We have been very fortunate to have Kernacopia as a grantee and have been pleased with the products, professionalism and our overall relationship. Their understanding and implementation of the ODDC brand has resulted in the creation of outstanding documents that have helped our organization to reach our public education goals throughout the state. In fact, many of the documents Kernacopia has produced have been recognized to the point that other agencies—including the Governor's office—have sought their creative project support as well. There is no limit to the expertise they provide. Kernacopia will go the extra mile to ensure products they produce are always of the utmost quality.”
