Do You Find the Special Education Process Confusing?

We are excited to share with our community The Arc@School, an online self-paced curriculum to assist anyone supporting a child with I/DD in special education.  Topics include advocacy skills training, IDEA, IEPs, 504s, procedural safeguards and so much more.  An interesting fact is that several chapters of The Arc, from all across the country, participated in the development of this curriculum, including us!  We are so proud of this work and believe it to be an invaluable tool for everyone.

If you work in the special education system, in any capacity, or support a child with I/DD, please click the link below and learn more about this opportunity.  There is a cost associated with this curriculum, however, if you use the promo code thearc2688, you will receive a $5 discount courtesy of our chapter.
