STURBRIDGE — To celebrate Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, it seems fitting that the spotlight be shined on a man who does not let his disability prevent him from leading an active and productive life.

Joe Pratico, 25, of West Brookfield, has been a member of the Rehabilitative Resources, Inc. (RRI) day habilitation program for four years. His mother, Paulette, is very pleased with the program and the array of activities RRI offers to his son, who suffers from autism.

"All of the RRI staff members are extremely professional and respectful of people's individual differences," Pratico said. "We are very lucky they offer this excellent program."
