DRIVING CHANGE AND PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES
People with IDD are sexually assaulted at seven times the rate of people without disabilities. The Arc’s Talk About Sexual Violence project, in partnership with the Board Resource Center, has developed new materials to help health care professionals, people with disabilities, and their families and supporters to tackle this problem head-on.
Whether you are a parent, educator, service provider, or non-attorney advocate, The Arc@School’s Advocacy Curriculum provides the basic information needed to navigate the special education system. Learn about early intervention services, individualized education programs, Section 504, and more!
The Arc fights every day to protect civil rights and access to vital programs, such as Medicaid, for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). But we can’t do it alone! We need the help of people with IDD, their families, and allies of the cause.
