Children, Teens and Families
We provide a continuum of services for families with infants and children diagnosed with a developmental disability. These include:
Disability Prevention Services: First Step to Success for in-home training of parents of babies with suspected developmental problems; and Learning Together Child Care Center for teen mothers of infants and pre-schoolers.
Respite Services: Short-term care that helps a family of a disabled child to take a break from the stress of their daily routine. Trained caregivers provide both in-home and center-based care.
Potentials Charter School: Integrated therapeutic education combining intensive classroom learning experiences as well as speech, occupational and physical therapy for children ages 3 to 10 who are unable to walk
Family Support Services: More than 2,000 families contact The Arc's Family Support Service every year to learn about the many public and private services available to their family members with developmental disabilities.
Out-Of-School Programs: Arc's Out-of-School programs provide rich community-based Recreational Services and a Community Inclusion Program for children with a wide variety of disabilities.
